Julie Ann Wrigley Global Institute of Sustainability

The ASU Wrigley Institute provides leadership and coordination for university sustainability initiatives. Our first-ever School of Sustainability trains the next generation of sustainability practitioners, entrepreneurs and leaders. An emphasis on sustainability across the curriculum directs coursework, research, and outreach toward solving today’s most important problems.

With more than half of the world’s population living in cities, the key to global sustainability is making our cities sustainable. The ASU Wrigley Institute places special emphasis on urban environments in research and education, particularly focusing on greater Phoenix as an urban laboratory where solutions to water, energy, transportation and livability are largely applicable to other rapidly urbanizing areas around the world.
