Many Americans fear the future, but Arizona State University (ASU) President Michael Crow isn't one of them. In fact, one conversation with him might just make you optimistic.
In his decades of working with students who grew up in the digital age -- the sapiens [dot] net as he calls them -- he has been comforted by their intelligence, their creativity and their commitment to inclusivity.
These are values he works to ingrain in the ASU culture. And it appears to be working. U.S. News & World Report has named Arizona State the country’s most innovative university three years in a row.
On this episode of "In the Arena," listen to Dr. Crow discuss how he helped ASU achieve this title.
