About the School of Social Transformation
One of many transdisciplinary schools unique to Arizona State University, the School of Social Transformation brings together diverse scholars, students and communities in African and African American studies, American studies, Asian Pacific American studies, Indigenous Education, Justice and Social Inquiry, Social and Cultural Pedagogy and Women and Gender studies.
Founded in 2009, the School of Social Transformation focuses on transformational knowledge, including creative research approaches to themes and questions embedded in broader historical, social and cultural contexts.
Our faculty, staff and students examine the processes of change and develop collaborative forms of teaching and knowledge creation in order to make discoveries, create social innovations and engage with others in changing the world.
We prepare our students to be informed members of society who are interdisciplinary, team-oriented, realworld problem solvers that can thrive in any environment, career or pursuit.
