ASU social sciences researchers, educators and students work to answer big questions about people, communities, our environment.
Science is only as good as it is translated into people's lives. At ASU, the social sciences provide knowledge, insight and skills to unite and catalyze humanities and natural sciences.
Through pursing the values of access, excellence and inclusion, ASU offers students pathways to thrive and fulfill their academic potential and change their lives, the lives of their families and community.
The social sciences is key in decision-making, how to better develop policy and sculpt interventions that help improve human outcomes.
The Center for Mindfulness, Compassion and Resilience brings together Arizona State University faculty, students and research partners to examine the impacts of mindfulness across a wide range of areas, including studies of social relationships and social justice, neuroscience and aging, wellbeing and immune function.
Among the ongoning research studies at ASU are efforts in the School of Social Work examining the impacts of mindfulness training and daily practice on communication and social connectedness. ASU scientists and partners are also investigating the mind-body connection and cognitive psychology, as well as how the human brain responds to mindfulness and its potential to enhance emotion regulation and positively impact neural patterns.
