How 9/11 changed the ways these faculty teach and research

From the global response to terrorism and the subversive weaponization of narratives, to the evolution of crisis management and guardians of civil liberties — 9/11 forced us to think differently; to rise to new challenges; and to confront the vulnerabilities of our democracy.

Twenty years after the attacks and in observance of the anniversary, ASU News reached out to faculty experts across Arizona State University to share their observations, research and reflections on 9/11’s cultural and global impact on our world — and on their work.

ASU, Arizona Western partnership provides bachelor's degrees in key needs for Yuma

Students at Arizona Western College’s Yuma campus will be able to complete a bachelor’s degree thanks to a new partnership with Arizona State University. The joint program between the two schools will offer degrees in three disciplines.

Students will be able to complete their ASU bachelor’s degrees on-site at one of the community college’s Yuma locations. Majors offered through the partnership were selected to address workforce needs in the greater Yuma area.
