Knowledge Mobilization

In today's knowledge-driven world, it is critical that scholars make their work usable and accessible beyond traditional academic disciplines. Knowledge mobilization explores concepts, skills and practices that move research from the page and into action, enriching current practice, policy and social discourse in the process.


Knowledge Mobilization Studio and KM Research Experiences

The Knowledge Mobilization Studio is a two-credit Spring course that offers scholars at all stages in their academic programs an opportunity to build practical skills around conducting use-forward and impactful research. The KM Studio is open to students in Masters and Doctoral programs, as well as non-degree-seeking students with a completed undergraduate degree.

In Summer 2020, the Knowledge Mobilization Initiative will also be sponsoring short research experience around issues of water sustainability along the US/Mexico border.  This opportunity is open to undergraduate upperclassmen (Juniors and Seniors) and graduate students. **Due to extraordinary current events, this research experience has been postponed; visit our website for more information.**


Knowledge Mobilization Awards

The Graduate College's Knowledge Mobilization Awards recognize the scholarly achievement, impact and action of ASU's graduate students and postdoctoral scholars.  The KMAs are an opportunity to collectively acknowledge the contributions our scholars have made and are making to current practice and policy.


"Knowledge mobilization enables us to draw connections between our disciplinary research and societal change. By emphasizing outcomes and impact-based research in the service of solving real-world problems, we enhance the use of research knowledge for the public good."

— Alfredo Artiles, Dean, Graduate College
