Article Summary

ASU has rapidly expanded its’ research operations and enrollment during President Michael Crow’s tenure

University is trying to expand research & build prestige for itself on a national level

Is access to solid undergraduate education for state residents being sacrificed?

“Finding the right balance between improving academic quality and serving state residents is not easy.”

commentary
Commentary
  • I agree with Patrick M. Callan, president of the National Center for Public Policy and Higher Education
    • “In this economy, the places that have been trying to claw their way up the ladder; the ones whose aspirations have exceeded their financial vision, are going to have the toughest time. They can’t be all things to all people.”
  • ASU needs to commit itself to its’ students, not administrators’ egos, in the face of financial strain
