International Educator - May/June 2018 - 31

Arizona State University (ASU), under President Michael
Crow, has taken significant steps toward extending higher
education to more people, making it easier and less expensive to
attain valuable skills. By incorporating online courses, as well as
new technological solutions for advising current and prospective
students, the school doubled its enrollment in the past 10 years,
reaching 100,000 in 2017. At the same time, ASU has attracted
top research academics, multiplied fourfold its National Science
Foundation grant awards, and created a top-ranked honors
college-all disproving the fallacy that scaling up must mean
dumbing down.
ASU has also improved student outcomes, while rapidly
expanding access, by investing in clear pathways to coherent
learning and valuable degrees. In just eight years after the launch
of eAdvisor, its online advising program, ASU achieved more than
a 50 percent rise in its four-year graduation rate for students with
family incomes below the U.S. median. The university's dedication
to inclusion and innovation has also positioned ASU as a magnet
for international students looking to prepare to participate in a
global workforce. ASU's extensive support programs, including
tutoring and advising, as well as job placement assistance, are a
major draw for international students and have led international
student enrollment to more than double since 2010.

Lifelong Learning for Lifelong Success
The other piece of the equation, balanced with improving access,
is focusing more energy on what should be higher education's primary mission: providing an education that's valuable to students
throughout their lives. This goal takes on another level of complexity and more urgency in a world where the pace of change in
the skills required is rapid. It can take students, and the university
staff who support them, time and resources to find the right fit
that will allow students to be as fulfilled and as productive as possible. Colleges and universities provide an essential service to help
students gain skills that will lead to a meaningful career where
they can contribute their maximum potential.
The boundary between learning and working is porous; the
two areas are interdependent, they start early, and they continue
through a student's entire working life. Students expect to enjoy
the tangible rewards of a higher education throughout their life, in
addition to valued intangibles. The demarcation between vocational learning and academic learning has long been overblown.
This false distinction is now actively damaging the ability to equip
students for the world they enter upon graduation. In an industrial economy, the distinction between learning to be a skilled
and efficient worker on the factory floor and learning to become
an architect of the assembly process had validity. In a knowledge
