Community Impact 

Tackling resilience challenges with data and partnerships

We are committed to sharing our data-driven research in strategic partnership with public, private, and nonprofit organizations to address our community's most pressing issues. Our close collaborations among ASU faulty, students, and key community networks also allow us to develop new insight that can lead to systems-level transformation. By bringing data and people teogether, we exchange knowledge, spark discovery, and implement solutions for building community resilience.

Data alone cannot solve problems. It must catalyze action. We will always strive to bring entites together with information to relieve suffering, and work together to build a dynamic, diverse, and resilient community.
