Department Statement

About the Learning Enterprise
We believe that the rigid and linear design of traditional higher education is neither an effective ladder to social and economic opportunity for all learners nor is it responsive to rapidly evolving workforce needs. ASU has responded to these challenges with the creation of Learning Enterprise (LE). We are guided by the belief that everyone should have universal access to education and opportunity. At every stage of life.

LE re-imagines the role of universities in society and evolves the design of learning offerings. These products (LE’s learning offerings) are academically rigorous, tech-enabled, and outcomes-driven. They are stackable, accessible, and evidence-based — designed to respond to the needs of students and employers with the resources and values of the university. 

LE‘s initial focus is on the following areas: foundational skills and mindsets, professional and technical career skills and personal development, cultural and civic learning.

At LE, we share a common set of values that guide our work and collaboration:

Scrappy. We are undaunted by challenges. We remain undeterred by anything that stands in the way of moving our vision forward. If we fall, we get up, over and over again. If it doesn’t exist, we create it. If something doesn’t work, we try something else.

Driven. We always push to be better for ourselves, for each other, and for our students. We are not defeated or guided by the status quo. We see what could be and relentlessly pursue it.

Intentional Architects. We know our attitude towards what we are doing will determine our success. We see the big picture and take deep pride in building every block that makes up our long-term vision. We are motivated by the potential of a transformed future while remaining firmly focused on tending to the tasks in front of us today.

Leading from the heart. We deeply care about people and their well-being. Everyone is unconditionally supported. We believe in human potential and invest in continuous growth.

Candid collaborators. We share ideas and feedback at all levels. We have strong opinions loosely held and intentionally engage in debate. We strive for clarity through direct and honest communication. We know our work is better for it.
