No. 1: ASU receives recognition for innovation
“We are trying to blur the line between society, the marketplace and the classroom every day,” says Brent Sebold (pictured in photo), director of Entrepreneurship + Innovation in the Fulton Schools of Engineering. The statement encapsulates a guiding mission of ASU that has led to the university being named No. 1 in innovation among the country’s institutions of higher education for five straight years by the U.S. News and World Report. Sebold is among faculty who focus on teaching the importance of entrepreneurship and value creation to ASU students to shape them into innovators. Student endeavors such as the all-female Desert WAVE robotics team — composed of Fulton Schools students —is one of the endeavors that have brought ASU wide recognition for its innovative ways.
