Student research

Research is a key component of any sustainability degree. The nation’s first School of Sustainability offers students at every academic level the opportunity to work collaboratively across disciplines.

By applying classroom concepts to real-world scenarios, sustainability students find solutions to pressing environmental, economic and social challenges. Explore the resources and tips below, and align your passion with one of the many projects our faculty and graduate students lead.

Exploring sustainability research opportunities

Research opportunities exist with School of Sustainability Faculty and Sustainability Scientists and Scholars.

Find what interests you. Popular research themes range from biodiversity to business, and can be found using the Global Institute of Sustainability and Innovation’s research browsing tool .

Attend sustainability lectures and events and read the weekly newsletters emailed to sustainability undergraduate and graduate students for additional research opportunities.

ASU News  also serves as a current source of new and ongoing green research projects. Join a student association or national association for your area of interest – whether it is environmental engineering, ecotourism or another green field – and attend a conference for further collaboration opportunities. Often, associations and conferences have special low rates for students.
