Page Background

ASU is on everybody’s list.

ASU has earned the U.S. News & World Report No. 1 ranking

as the country’s “most innovative” university, ahead of No. 2

Stanford and No. 3 MIT.

The prestigious ranking is the result of ASU’s commitment to excellence, access and impact. The

university strives to be measured not by whom it excludes, but by whom it includes and how they

succeed; by advancing research and discovery of public value; and assuming fundamental responsibility

for the economic, social, cultural and overall health of the communities it serves. These are the pillars

supporting the ASU vision of the New American University. Combined with their scope and scale, the

pillars allow for the creation of world-class teaching, learning and discovery environments. International

publications recognize ASU as a top world university.

ASU's research enterprise has quadrupled over the past decade, driven by "moonshot thinking"

that tackles enormous challenges with radical solutions and breakthrough technology, such as the

university's recent role in developing a treatment for Ebola and its researchers designing satellites the

size of an egg. This year ASU simultaneously is producing the largest number of Fulbright Scholars

and the newly minted national champions of e-sports, and stands as the No. 1 public research

university chosen by international students.

The best and brightest

ASU faculty are at the forefront nationally in

advancing research and discovery. The university

has more faculty Fulbright Scholars than any other

in the country, and is a top-five producer of student

Fulbright Scholars. Four Nobel winners and a trio

of Pulitzer Prize recipients teach at ASU. More

prestigious Flinn student scholars attend ASU than

any other university in the state, and ASU is No. 1

in the country over the past decade in producing

STEM-focused Goldwater student scholars. Barrett,

The Honors College at ASU has been called “the

gold standard of honors colleges” in the U.S. by The

New York Times, and its multi-campus residential

community has more National Merit Scholars than

MIT, Stanford, University of California–Berkeley, Duke

and Brown, to name but a handful.
