NB|AZ elevates opportunities for ASU law students.

For a community to thrive, it takes collaboration between businesses, organizations and institutions to create opportunities for the public. Such is the case with National Bank of Arizona (NB|AZ) and the Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law at Arizona State University, that recently made their partnership official in August, when the second floor lobby of the law school was named after NB|AZ.

“That National Bank of Arizona has put its name on our second-floor lobby is wonderful. That the bank is also funding a scholarship for ASU law students is amazing,” says Douglas Sylvester, dean of the Sandra Day O’ Connor College of Law at Arizona State University. “We are proud to count NB|AZ as one of our community partners and we look forward to continuing to work with them on future projects that will benefit our students and the community.”

The lobby is located on the second floor of the Beus Center for Law & Society, which is home to the Lincoln Center for Applied Ethics, the McCain Institute for International Leadership, the Sandra Day O’ Connor Institute, and Arizona Voice for Crime Victims.

As part of the relationship, an annual National Bank of Arizona Scholars program is b eing created.

“National Bank of Arizona’s generosity not only provides our students with additional scholarship opportunities,” says Janet Perez, director of communications for the Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law, “it also allows us to partner with a corporation that has such deep ties to the state of Arizona.”
