Arizona State University School for the Future of Innovation in Society

Tempe, Arizona, United States Arizona State University
Universities prepare students for the future. At SFIS we make the future – or, rather, the set of plausible futures that humanity has – a focus of our activities. We are planning now for the kinds of futures that we will want to inhabit.



The new School for the Future of Innovation in Society offers students an opportunity to be part of an exciting and promising set of undergraduate and graduate programs, certificates and coursework that incorporates science, technology, innovation and society.

We have a faculty with an extraordinary track record of teaching, research and service that fully embraces the design aspirations of the New American University. Their interdisciplinary background ranges from political science to electrical engineering, from physics to geography, from environmental science to law, and from geology to science and technology studies.
