CITY

The university is an idea engine. The University City Exchange (UCX) tracks the academic and research assets of ASU and seeks to apply them in the city for the greater good.The UCX is dedicated to the advancement of the Phoenix metro region and of the American city through unique conceptualization and visualization of collaborative projects and through the construction of alternative narratives for a more sustainable future.

The city is a profound societal indicator. As a focused urban observatory, the UCX examines the built environment for opportunities leading to transformative university engagement and impact. The UCX merges city and institutional interests on actual sites and in built projects that promote a vital public realm, socio-economic benefit for all and long-term resiliency strategies.
