A year after threatening to close some of its campuses because of budget cuts, Arizona State University is moving forward with expansion plans throughout the state. Plans range from a significantly ramped-up partnership between ASU and Mayo Clinic, to a multimillion-dollar research facility at ASU Main in Tempe, to building a new campus in Goodyear focusing on solar power and aerospace.
Dr. Denis Cortese -former president and CEO of mayo clinic, who now is leading ASU's Health Care Delivery and Policy Program ? is likely to become president of HTI. Crow said Cortese's work at HTI will overlap with what ASU is doing with Mayo.
