Welcome to the Barrett Honors College at the Polytechnic campus. My mission is to prepare students to become scholars in academia and leaders in industry.

The faculty, staff and I are here to educate and train you to achieve your aspirations, whether it’s finding that perfect career or pursuing advanced graduate or professional education - either here, or around the world. Barrett can help you find your place in the world and raise your sights even beyond what you think is possible.

Here at the Polytechnic campus, our Barrett Suite in Lantana Hall features space exclusively for honors students including two classrooms, study/work spaces, a thesis and lending library, and a lounge for events and gatherings. The Barrett Suite, with all its amenities, is the perfect place for students to work between classes or to spend the day studying. In addition to these student spaces, the suite houses offices of our dedicated, full-time Barrett staff and faculty.

I encourage you to contact our office with questions and to schedule a visit so we can welcome you in person to Barrett, The Honors College at ASU’s Polytechnic campus.
