The Consortium for Science, Policy, and Outcomes operates on multiple scales. CSPO is an independent unit in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences at Arizona State University, with university-wide faculty appointments, faculty affiliates, staff, programs and projects, as detailed on this website. CSPO also collaborates with an array of other units at ASU, including: the Biodesign Institute; the Global Institute of Sustainability; the Center for Biology and Society; the Center for Cognitive Ubiquitous Computing; and the Center for the Study of the Law, Science, and Technology. The Consortium for Science, Policy, and Outcomes is an intellectual network aimed at enhancing the contribution of science and technology to society’s pursuit of equality, justice, freedom, and overall quality of life. The Consortium creates knowledge and methods, cultivates public discourse, and fosters policies to help decision makers and institutions grapple with the immense power and importance of science and technology as society charts a course for the future. Crucially, the Consortium also extends far beyond ASU to include a network of collaborating groups whose activities focus, in whole or in part, on enhancing the connections between science, technology, and desired societal outcomes, through a diverse portfolio of research, education, and outreach activities.
