ASU staff make ASU #1 in innovation. Join us.

ASU consistently ranks as the most innovative school in the nation, ahead of schools like MIT and Stanford.

That’s because ASU staff members work hard to create ways for students to get the most out of their time at the university.


“Ranking #1 recognizes ASU’s innovation mindset. It acknowledges something important about who we are and who we will continue to be: a university that brings diverse intellects together to solve the most pressing issues of our time.”

Michael M. Crow

President, Arizona State University

Innovation is happening in so many ways across the institution, and there are so many people doing innovative things. We invite all ASU students, faculty, and staff to join us.
