Michael Crow: Arizona residents can afford ASU now more than ever before
Jan. 30, 2018
As the lawsuit between the Arizona Attorney General’s Office and the Arizona Board of Regents over the cost of tuition moves forward, the president of the state’s largest university offers his insight into how the university provides an affordable education.
Michael Crow, president of Arizona State University, says the university is honoring the state constitution’s mandate to keep public education “nearly as free as possible” and is offering affordable education to more Arizona residents now than at any time in the university’s history.
Crow addressed various claims made by Attorney General Mark Brnovich last week on “Arizona Horizon,” which included an assertion that the university is operating financial “shell games.” Crow says that ASU’s finances are regularly reviewed by auditors and review boards.
