Dr. Quinton Ross, President ASU

When I returned to my beloved alma mater as its 15th President, we were in the midst of the celebration of the University’s sesquicentennial. With that in mind, I began my tenure with the words “ASU150 Forward: The Time is Now!” I have had the opportunity to voice that mantra from day one, when I delivered the address for the Fall Convocation. This theme has its basis in expressing immense pride in an institution that has provided 150 years of academic excellence, while also pointing toward a future centered on elevating our University to new levels of local, national and global prominence.
