This event honors the late Debra Friedman, former ASU vice president of the Downtown Phoenix campus and dean of ASU’s College of Public Programs. Friedman played a prominent role in public programs, civil rights, social work, community resources, and modern arts in metropolitan Phoenix. In 2011, she continued similar work at UW-Tacoma. Capitalizing on a university’s location in the downtown core she strengthened the mission of public universities to bridge the divide between engagement, access and excellence. She died Jan. 26 from lung cancer.
