According to The Home Depot: Retool Your School initiative, the program strives to give back to Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) what they have so generously given to their communities: a strong foundation, renewed purpose, and distinctive character.

Since its inception in 2009, the Retool Your School Program has awarded 184 campus improvement grants totaling more than $5.2 million.

ASU won the $50,000 grant in 2017 and remodeled the student health center to provide a more sustainable space for students’ healthcare. In 2022, ASU won a total of $95,000 in grants, which helped fund a campus improvement project in the J. Garrick Hardy Student Center. With your support, we will win again!
