Tags: arizona state university

[Source: ASU News] - Joining the faculty at ASU is not an option for professors who enjoy the status quo. The university draws academics who want to challenge convention, breaking through old boundaries to help develop new courses and new ways of thinking.

That sense of enterprise is a common thread among the 106 new faculty who have been hired at ASU, 98 of them joining the university this fall and the other eight next year.

The list includes the highest percentage of minority hires since 2006, and the highest proportion of women in three years. Forty-one are female, and 37 are ethnic minorities.
