Meet our Scholars

Institutionalizing our approach and accelerating our impact

We rely on a cadre of scholars, drawn from our close collaborators from ASU and the wider community, to supplement our core team’s capabilities. From the initial design of our activities to scaling up our impact, these scholars have helped make KER what it is.

Enterprise and impact scholars, 2022–2024

Building on the work of our crosscutting design scholars, our enterprise scholars are institutionalizing KER as a design characteristic of the New American University. As they do the slow work of institutional transformation, our impact scholars are helping us respond quickly to the urgent threat of extreme heat in Arizona.

Crosscutting design scholars, 2018–2021

This small group of faculty and researchers filled in special knowledge gaps to support the evidence-based design of KER as a transformative initiative. Selected and invited by Director Wentz, they each undertook a specific design question around building community resilience. Together, they developed the Knowledge Exchange Playbook for Resilience, to document KER designs and tools in a publicly available resource.
