On July 30, ASU Gammage announced the creation of the Colleen Jennings-Roggensack Endowment for Cultural Participation in honor of Jennings-Roggensack’s 20 years of service.

Jennings-Roggensack has helped grow the venue into the largest university-based presenter of performing arts in the world and established its mission of Connecting CommunitiesTM, which brings the work ASU Gammage presents beyond the stage and impacts the community through shared experiences. Jennings-Roggensack has artistic, fiscal and administrative responsibility for ASU Gammage, ASU Kerr Cultural Center, with additional responsibility for non-athletic activities at Sun Devil Stadium and Wells Fargo Arena.

The endowment, which will fund cultural participation programs at ASU Gammage, will allow community members to participate in shared cultural experiences with artists in residence and the best arts educators from around the world. ASU Gammage serves more than 35,000 children and families through cultural participation programs.
