U.S. News & World Report: ASU Among “Best Colleges” for Operating Efficiency

In its 2015 Best Colleges rankings, U.S. News & World Report recently named Arizona State University one of the most efficient universities in the nation. The publication’s analysis compared top ranked national universities in terms of spending and educational quality. ASU ranked 13th in terms of operating efficiency, ahead of Texas A&M, Rutgers, and the University of Oregon among others.

2014 – ASU’s Most Significant Year

The 2014-2015 Arizona State University Annual Report is now online. In addition to the adoption of ASU’s first-ever charter, the report highlights ASU’s major accomplishments in the areas of success and inclusion, purpose-based research and community impact. Among its achievements, ASU set new records in enrollment, freshman class quality, Fulbright awards, student persistence and graduation.

Leading in Faculty Diversity

Arizona State University now has the most diverse tenure-track faculty in its history. When compared to its peer institutions (as identified by the Arizona Board of Regents), ASU leads in the proportion of its faculty made up of women and minority women. This milestone is significant because a world-class faculty is an integral component of ASU’s efforts to transform 21st century higher education, and it is a meaningful point of pride to know that ASU’s faculty reflects its institutional commitment to excellence, access and impact.
