End-of-semester showcase presentations

Project Cities hosts a public showcase forum for students twice annually as each semester draws to a close. The forum is an opportunity for the students to present their research findings and recommendations to city dignitaries such as council and department directors, as well as to the general public and the ASU community. Presentations are recorded and can be viewed online below:

Sample project list

The potential applications of the Project Cities model are highly multi-disciplinary in nature, and the breadth of expertise and resources at ASU is wide-ranging. Cities have flexibility in suggesting potential projects in a broad range of department and topic areas associated with sustainability (environmental, social, and/or economic). Projects are scoped, adapted and matched to meet the Partner Community’s needs and priorities.
