Big challenges need new thinking

We all share a stake in the future. Be part of the world’s first College of Global Futures, dedicated to creating a sustainable, equitable and vibrant future for everyone.

In Arizona State University’s College of Global Futures, we prepare our students to address some of the greatest challenges of our time: from ensuring the social benefits of powerful new technologies and creating just and sustainable futures, to exploring solutions to emerging issues that transcend the limitations of conventional thinking. Our students have numerous opportunities to work closely with professors and engage in exciting research to uncover more inclusive futures.

Additionally ASU was ranked No. 1 on Sierra magazine’s 15th annual “coolest schools” competitive ranking of the most environmentally friendly colleges and universities in North America.
