President, Arizona State University

Dr. Crow is guiding the transformation of ASU into one of the nation’s leading public metropolitan research universities, an institution that combines the highest levels of academic excellence, inclusiveness to a broad demographic, and maximum societal impact – a model he terms the “New American University.” During his tenure the university has nearly quadrupled research expenditures, completed an unprecedented infrastructure expansion, and was named the nation’s most innovative school by U.S. News & World Report in 2016, 2017 and 2018.
