Misson & Vision


ASU’s Office of Community Health, Engagement, and Resiliency’s (ASU OCHER) mission is to co-create interventions with communities that focus on inherent strengths and assets that promote resiliency, especially with underserved communities of color, and to create or strengthen pathways of opportunity for all people to achieve their full potential.


As such, we are deeply embedded in communities to promote health, well-being, and resiliency hand-in-hand with our community partners. Our work aims to build community capacity and solve complex social problems through partnership in order that we are all stronger, communities are empowered, and together we achieve positive social change.
