'Engineering the Future' introduces ASU minds to industry needs

Business, meet Arizona State University’s engineers. This is what we can do for you.

The Phoenix Business Journal co-sponsored the event.

'Mindfulness is a skill set': ASU poised to contribute

Standing at the front of a large lecture hall as hundreds of college students streamed in with their books, bags and devices, headphones still in their ears, something dawned on William Heywood. They were distracted from the moment they came in the room.

'The Veterans Project' storytelling performance comes to FilmBar

Veterans of the U.S. military will share personal stories of service and life after the military in "The Veterans Project," which will be presented at FilmBar in downtown Phoenix on Nov. 9. Currently in its fourth year, "The Veterans Project" is the product of an ongoing initiative at ASU to create space for veteran-civilian community dialogue. Five previous iterations have been performed in Tempe, Phoenix and Tucson since 2013.
