Arizona State University

Arizona State University  (ASU) is one of the top public research universities in the United States and was recently ranked #1 in the U.S. for innovation byU.S. News and World Report. ASU uses an interdisciplinary approach to engage in collaborative action with the global community, which makes connecting the researchers and students from ASU with opportunities embedded in the Sustainable Coffee Challenge a natural partnership. With priorities including introducing greater transparency in coffee supply chains and improving the lives of coffee producers, ASU’s commitment to sustainable coffee exemplifies future opportunities for the academic community to engage in sustainability through collaboration.

We are excited to connect our top researchers and students across multiple disciplines and departments with the opportunities that will emerge from our collective interests in making coffee supply chains more sustainable, and bringing better lives to coffee farmers and their communities.”
