Dr. Michael Crow

President of Arizona State University

Dr. Michael Crow has served as President of Arizona State University (ASU) since 2002. Dr. Crow maintains that lack of investment in access to public universities will lead to complacency and failure both for the universities and the nation. Under his leadership, ASU is trailblazing new trends in institutional outreach to achieve greater student inclusivity. Dr. Crow is building ASU as a prototype for the New American University, which must be competitive in attracting talent nationally and internationally. According to Crow, the New American University will not be defined by research or instruction, but by embracing the idea of perpetual innovation. Dr. Crow has become globally recognized for his desire to revolutionize higher education through technology, flexibility, and increased engagement.
