Helios recently broke ground on its new 65,000 square foot building which will be the permanent home to the Foundation. The building will include office space for Helios staff as well as office space for education non-profit partners.  In addition, there will be collaboration and convening space that will be open to the community.  The Campus will foster collaboration and partnership to help create much needed opportunities for students. 

"This will be a gathering place for educators, policy makers, teachers and others to strategically map out big ideas, and build public and political will for key reforms that can break down barriers to a quality education," said Paul J. Luna, President and CEO, Helios Education Foundation.  "This education campus will enable unprecedented collaboration, and we hope it will be a point of pride for all of Arizona."

The new building will enable unprecedented collaboration and bring together public officials, business and community leaders and educators to strengthen Helios' core mission:  to create opportunities for individuals to succeed in postsecondary education.  

 

Partnership

More than 21,000 square feet will be used for convening and meeting space and about 28,000 square feet will be used for office space for community and non-profit partners.  

 

Impact

The new building features a large courtyard and outdoor space to take advantage of the Arizona climate.  The building also includes several meeting rooms of different sizes to accommodate large and small group meetings.  

"Helios is making a centuries-long commitment to Arizona students and teachers, and our new campus will be an anchor for educational excellence,"  said Vince Roig, Founding Chairman, Helios Education Foundation.  "This investment of bricks and brilliant minds will help more students every year succeed in the knowledge economy of the future."
