ASU's new digital magazine parallels university charter

asu_thrive_app_charterASU Thrive, Arizona State University's new digital magazine, is now available free of charge to iPad users through Apple's App Store. The magazine features Adobe’s Digital Publishing Suite and will be released three times per year. Stories are presented via text, video and audio, combining groundbreaking design and an interactive format. It is designed for those who regularly follow ASU’s colleges, programs, centers and institutes, and those who teach and learn at the university. ASU Thrive's editorial focus will parallel the ASU Charter: a public research university measured not by whom it excludes, but by whom it includes and how they succeed; one that advances research and discovery of public value; and an institution that assumes fundamental responsibility for the economic, social, cultural and overall health of the communities it serves. The digital magazine will follow the progress being made across the university in these areas.
