The vision for ASU is to establish it as the model for a New American University, measured not by who we exclude, but rather by who we include and how they succeed; pursuing research and discovery that benefits the public good; assuming major responsibility for the economic, social, and cultural vitality and health and well-being of the community.
This will be accomplished by demonstrating American leadership in academic excellence and accessibility, establishing national standing in academic quality and impact of colleges and schools in every field, establishing ASU as a global center for interdisciplinary research, discovery and development, and enhancing our local impact and social embeddedness.
