Katherine K. Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts, also known as Herberger College or Herberger College of the Arts is a college of fine arts at Arizona State University, in Tempe, Arizona. It was founded in 1964, with approximately 80 members of faculty and staff. The first Dean was Henry A. Bruinsma, who had previously been chair of the Music Department at ASU.

The College contains five smaller schools within it, each of which are nationally ranked academic units: the School of Art, School of Music, Department of Dance, School of Theatre and Film, and an Arts, Media and Engineering Program (AME). The College also hosts a University Art Museum, for research and conservation of works of art.

Originally created as the "College of Fine Arts", it was renamed to the "Katherine K. Herberger College of Fine Arts" in 2000, in the honor of Phoenix philanthropist Katherine K. "Kax" Herberger.

April 30, 2009, the Arizona Board of Regents approved the merger of the College of Design and the Herberger College of the Arts into the Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts.[1]
