Global Development and Sustainability

Research universities in the United States and around the world are a primary source of new knowledge and innovation that drives the global economy.

In a constantly changing and globalized world, there is an urgent and ongoing need for experts and effective cross-cultural communicators. Our goal is to empower the next generation of master learners and enrich partnerships and leaders to face the complex social, political, economic and environmental global challenges of the future.

Arizona State University is a comprehensive academic knowledge enterprise committed to discovery, creativity and innovation. From developing novel public-private worldwide partnerships, to programs in Vietnam, Latin American and the Pacific Islands with USAID, to educational investments in India, South Sudan, Germany and Palestine, ASU challenges public universities to develop innovative strategies to address the grand challenges of our era.
