ASU Now: A Sun Devil life at ASU Center in D.C.

Wednesday, June 6, 2018

ASU Now featured Bianca Lucero, special events manager at the McCain Institute for International Leadership at Arizona State University's new center in Washington, D.C.

The proud alumna and die-hard Sun Devil graduated with a bachelor’s degree in communications and holds a master’s degree in nonprofit leadership and management. She worked as a community relations coordinator for ASU Public Events in the Office of Cultural Participation. Her efforts enabled her to connect communities to innovative arts programs throughout the Valley.

She was chosen as a recipient of the Arizona Hispanic 40 Under 40 Award in 2013.

Lucero brings that prestige to the McCain Institute, which is housed in the 32,000-square-foot, eight-story Ambassador Barbara Barrett & Justice Sandra Day O’Connor Washington Center, just two blocks from the White House. In addition to the McCain Institute, the center also houses various ASU programs such as the Cronkite News Washington Bureau, Center on the Future of War, Consortium for Science, Policy and Outcomes, the Morrison Institute for Public Policy and the L. William Seidman Research Institute.
