Research

Arizona State University faculty and students are engaged in international academic, development and research activities in more than 80 countries and on all seven continents. We build knowledge exchange, business development and institutional partnerships in Ireland, Mexico, China and Israel, teacher education in Sudan, Philippines, Turkey and India, and research collaborations across the globe in energy innovation, sustainability, medicine, engineering, science and human rights.

The greatest challenges facing the world today – such as climate change or border-crossing epidemics – are complex in nature, requiring expertise from the sciences, engineering, policy, law, social sciences and humanities. In the past decade, ASU has reorganized academic departments around challenges rather than traditional disciplines and established more than 30 cross-disciplinary research units. This enables the university to rapidly deploy solutions-focused teams for projects in developing countries.
