Transforming the world

At Arizona State University, we are forging a new role for higher education in the world by engaging with people and issues locally, nationally and internationally. ASU is ranked in the top 10 among universities chosen by international students in the United States (Open Doors Report, 2015-2019). Also, ASU is in the top 10 for study abroad and offers opportunities for research and development, and promotes innovation, professional enrichment and international collaboration in more than 80 countries.

From medicine to robotics, energy to human rights, and scientific discovery to business development and global management, our students, world-class programs, faculty, and engagement abroad reflect the issues we care about and real-world impact we hope to provide in our increasingly global community.
