TEMPE, AZ - For the fourth year in a row, the Arizona State University Alumni Association is providing complimentary ASU-themed back-to-school packets to Sun Devil educators all around the world.

Last year, to spread the Sun Devil spirit throughout the world, the organization sent over 3,500 packets to teachers in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and five countries.

"The ASU Alumni Association provides complimentary packs to our alumni educators as they are an integral part in ASU’s mission to educate the next generation of community leaders," said the president and CEO of the university, Christine K. Wilkinson. She elaborates that the packet contains more than just free ASU products, it also includes information on resources that might help instructors with their professional development and classrooms.

The Alumni Association's employees at Old Main on the Tempe campus packaged thousands of back-to-school packs on Friday, July 23. From now until September 15, back-to-school packs can be obtained using an online form. And according to the Alumni Association, teachers who upload a selfie on social media with the hashtag #sundevilteacher will be put into a lottery for ASU prizes and classroom treasure box refills.

This year's packet includes a note from President Michael M. Crow, stickers for teachers and students, a zipper pull, a door hanger, bookmark rulers, a magnetic picture frame, a carabiner, and an ASU pennant. All of this was made possible thanks to the support of Educational Outreach and Student Services and the Mary Lou Fulton Teachers College.

On the ASU website, teachers may discover more about the materials available to them, as well as information about books authored by alumni for classroom or personal reading, and downloadable ASU Zoom backdrops, desktop backgrounds, and social media pictures. Teachers, guidance counselors, social workers, and librarians, to mention a few, would find the spirit packet useful.
