Center for Science, Technology & Environmental Policy Studies (C-STEPS)

Department Description

Our work focuses on the study of science as a social phenomenon--science as the core of things that happen technologically, environmentally and through policy. We offer a unique research environment for faculty, graduate students, and practitioners on science, technology, and environment policy issues.

Located in the School of Public Affairs at Arizona State University, our center helps support a Ph.D. program in Science and Technology through funded projects which enable the training of a new generation of social scientists dedicated to multidisciplinary approaches to addressing local, national, and global challenges and opportunities at the interface of ST&E and society. The center is directed by Dr. Eric Welch and Dr. Mary K. Feeney serves as the associate director.
