For the second year in a row, Arizona State University was ranked the most innovative educational institution in the United States by U.S. News & World Report.
The list compared more than 1,500 institutions in numerous categories.
“We do things differently, and we constantly try new approaches,” ASU President Michael Crow said.
Some of the school's innovative activities include a partnership with Starbucks, an expanded ASU online program and the development of the me3 tool which matches students with potential career options. You can find more information about the partnership with Starbucks at ASU's website.
Gov. Doug Ducey said the university’s Tempe campus produced more Fulbright scholars than any research institution in the United States during the school year.
Ducey highlighted many of the school's achievements during his State of the State speech.
“The equivalent of an Ivy League education (is) right here, accessible to all ... and the envy of every other state in the nation,” he said.
Ducey concluded his recent website post congratulating Arizona State University and stating that "this is more proof that Arizona is on the rise."
