ASU President Michael Crow on innovation, tenure and meeting demands - Autumn A. Arnett, Education Dive

Arizona State University President Dr. Michael Crow took the reigns of the university 14 years ago, and under his leadership, the institution has implemented a number of programs and innovations, including the Starbucks College Achievement Plan, the University Innovation Alliance, eAdvisor, Learn-Explore-Advance-Design, ASU 101, the Student 360 view and retention dashboard. Arizona State has an 86% freshman retention rate, thanks in no small part to its concentrated efforts around the Global Freshman Academy, which Crow says "draws in students who, because of life balance or a need for greater confidence, have shied away from attempting higher education," and the institution's First-Year Success Center — "which pairs highly trained upper-division graduate students with freshmen and sophomores to offer free, personal academic support and advocacy."
