Herberger Institute alumni

As alumni of the Herberger Institute for the Design and the Arts, we want to make sure you have the tools you need to encourage creative growth throughout the community and within yourself! Please use these resources for networking, career searches, volunteering and other great opportunities and benefits!

Stay connected and get involved

Networking is key. What better way to grow and maintain your network than with your fellow Herberger alumni?

Join the alumni chapter

The Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts Alumni Chapter consists of all graduates of the Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts programs, which includes art; arts, media and engineering; design; film, dance and theatre; and music. The chapter also includes graduates of both the Herberger College of the Arts and the College of Design, which combined to become the Herberger Institute in 2009. This free affiliate chapter promotes alumni to stay connected with their program, each other, current students and Arizona State University.

The academic council is an affiliate to the ASU Alumni Association. We strongly recommend taking advantage of the resources available to all ASU Alumni, including discounts and benefits, recent news, and opportunities. When registering, don’t forget to mention you were “referred by Herberger Institute Council.”


People choose to volunteer for many reasons: to give back to a group that’s nurtured them, to work for a better tomorrow, to find new friends, or to explore a new skill or talent. We have several ways for Sun Devil supporters to volunteer with us. View ASU-wide volunteer opportunities or contact the Herberger Institute alumni chapter to get involved with your school!
