Why the world is talking about ASU

By Michael Crow
Dear friends of ASU,
As we enter an exciting new year of excellence at Arizona State University, I want to call your attention to just how momentous 2015 was in the evolution of our New American University. We set milestones in research, accessibility and achievement throughout our learning enterprise, and for service to our local and global communities.
Most visibly, ASU was ranked #1 among the Most Innovative Schools in the nation for 2016 by U.S. News & World Report – a ranking conferred by our peers, the leaders of other universities. The world is talking about ASU, and it will greatly benefit our efforts to support the success of our students when you talk about us as well.
Our Jan. 13 Community Conversation provided an overview of ASU’s commitment to innovation and our future trajectory. Please read about the event on ASU Now as well as view significant moments from the conversation. You can also read about highlights from 2015 in our Year in Review document. Please share the links with your contacts.
Thank you for your ongoing engagement,
Michael M. Crow
Arizona State University
