Life at W. P. Carey

The ASU California Center

ASU has been named the most innovative university in America by U.S. News & World Report. Our innovative mindset has expanded to Los Angeles, bringing world-class instruction and the New American University to a brand new campus location, the ASU California Center in the historic Herald Examiner Building.

The Herald Examiner Building will provide students from all of ASU’s campuses the opportunity to make connections within Los Angeles and engage industries through jobs and internships. The new location will also help expand access to higher education for California students and life-long learners through undergraduate and graduate degree programs, executive education, workshops and seminars.
