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
In today's knowledge-driven world, it is critical that scholars make their work usable and accessible beyond traditional academic disciplines. Knowledge mobilization explores concepts, skills and practices that move research from the page and into action, enriching current practice, policy and social discourse in the process.
The Knowledge Mobilization Studio is a one-credit Spring course that offers scholars at all stages in their academic programs an opportunity to build practical skills around conducting use-forward and impactful research. The KM Studio is open to students in Masters and Doctoral programs, as well as non-degree-seeking students with a completed undergraduate degree.
In Summer 2020, the Knowledge Mobilization Initiative will also be sponsoring short research experience around issues of water sustainability along the US/Mexico border. This opportunity is open to undergraduate upperclassmen (Juniors and Seniors) and graduate students.
The Graduate College's Knowledge Mobilization Awards recognize the scholarly achievement, impact and action of ASU's graduate students and postdoctoral scholars. The KMAs are an opportunity to collectively acknowledge the contributions our scholars have made and are making to current practice and policy.
"Knowledge mobilization enables us to draw connections between our disciplinary research and societal change. By emphasizing outcomes and impact-based research in the service of solving real-world problems, we enhance the use of research knowledge for the public good."
— Alfredo Artiles, Dean, Graduate College
