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

Fighting the opioid epidemic

What can we learn from wastewater? Adam Gushgari, PhD, Civil Environment and Sustainable Engineering, works with local governments to collect non-invasive and anonymous samples of wastewater to understand community drug abuse. The collected data help local officials better focus education, actions and policies toward efforts to combat the opioid epidemic.
