Statement from ASU President Michael M. Crow on Governor Ducey's FY21 Budget Proposal

January 17, 2020

The process of approving a state budget includes many considerations and involves extensive input from multiple stakeholders. From Arizona State University’s perspective, today’s announcement of the Governor’s proposed budget is a great first step in that journey. We are pleased to see his commitment to the New Economy Initiative proposed by the Arizona Board of Regents and his faith in Arizona’s public universities to help advance our state’s economic resilience and the business community’s competitive edge. ASU is dedicated to using all of its learning and research assets to support this effort by producing more graduates and groundbreaking innovations that will drive our economy forward. We appreciate what Governor Ducey has proposed in his budget and we look forward to more discussions on the merits and scale of this investment.
