How do you envision your future?

For the second consecutive year, ASU has been named No. 1 in the U.S. (and top 10 globally) for its work to meet the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and create a better world by 2030.

A better world includes gender equality, clean water and air, combating climate change, and more. We offer courses and curriculum dedicated to the disciplines that comprise our three schools: the School of Sustainability, the School for the Future of Innovation in Society, and the School of Complex Adaptive Systems. The opportunities provided through degree programs, student life experiences and faculty-guided research are the cornerstones to a university-wide approach that is ingrained within the ASU charter and the university’s eight design aspirations: to be dedicated to the simultaneous pursuit of excellence, broad access to quality education, and meaningful societal impact.

Indigenous cultures acknowledgment

The ASU College of Global Futures recognizes that opportunities to shape the future rely on the knowledge, wisdom, and practices of those who came before us.

In that spirit, we join partners across the university in acknowledging the twenty-two Native Nations that have inhabited this land for centuries, including the Akimel O’odham (Pima) and Piipaash (Maricopa) Indian Communities, whose care and keeping of these lands and traditions allow us to be here today.
