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.
