Due to the continued spread of the COVID-19 virus and the public health recommendations that come with it, Arizona State University will be celebrating with its graduates in the 2020 Spring commencement in a virtual, online ceremony. The format may be different, but our enthusiasm for celebration has never been more inspired and we encourage you to join us in honoring ASU graduate and undergraduate students the week of May 11. Planning is underway. For more details, please check back here for updates and additional information about online activities. Commencement FAQ page

Knowledge Mobilization Studio

KM Studio: WEST (Water and Environmental Sustainability Training)

The Knowledge Mobilization Studio is a one-credit Spring Session B course that offers scholars at all stages in their academic programs an opportunity to build practical skills around conducting use-forward and impactful research.  During this course, scholars will utilize knowledge mobilization to explore an interdisciplinary research project; for Spring 2020, this project will center on issues of environmental sustainability and water use along the US/Mexico border.

The KM Studio will be held on Thursdays, 4:30-5:45 PM, in the INST4 TEAL lab (ISTB4 296).  

Registration for Spring 2020 is now open. See the ASU Course Catalog to register.

Summer 2020 KM Research Experience

In May 2020, the Knowledge Mobilization Initiative will sponsor a short research experience along the US/Mexico border.  Connected to the research focus of the Spring KM Studio, students will meet and collaborate with industry, academic and advocacy groups; through a set of structured, team-based activities, students will problem-solve approaches and propose solutions to local water issues, and learn to recognize common themes in water sustainability across the US/Mexico border region.  This experience is open to undergraduate upperclassmen (Juniors and Seniors) and graduate students.  Enrollment in the Spring KM Studio is encouraged, but not required.
