Today at its regular meeting, the Arizona Board of Regents (ABOR) authorized a contract extension for ASU President Michael M.

“Under Dr. Crow’s visionary leadership, ASU has not only grown to be the largest public university in the country, but has also achieved widespread recognition as one of the nation’s most innovative and productive,” said Anne Mariucci, chairman of the Board of Regents. “We are thrilled to have the continuity of his leadership for the university.”

Crow’s contract extension does not include any additional compensation beyond that provided in his current contract.  Performance expectations for Crow will reference performance goals, such as the Arizona Higher Education Enterprise Plan metrics, adopted by the board.

Michael M. Crow became the 16th president of ASU on July 1, 2002. During his tenure, he has guided the transformation of ASU into one of the nation’s leading public metropolitan research universities, an institution that combines the highest levels of academic excellence, inclusiveness to a broad demographic, and maximum societal impact – a model he terms the “New American University.”

"I'm very appreciative of the confidence the Arizona Board of Regents has shown in me with this contract extension," Crow said. "Nine years ago we began the transformation of ASU into the New American University with the launching of our first 10-year plan. This new model for a public research university is a work in progress, and I look forward to the launching of the second phase of our long range plan for ASU as we approach the 10th anniversary of the New American University a year and half from now."
