Arizona State University's Center for Science and the Imagination ignites collective imagination for a better future. We provide opportunities for people of all ages and backgrounds to come together, learn and explore visions of the future in creative and fun settings. Through public events, immersive gatherings and multimedia storytelling platforms, we engage people from all walks of life, harnessing the power of the imagination as a resource for confronting humanity's greatest challenges.

Impact of Donor Support

  • More learners can pursue higher education. In 2022, 22,000 donors contributed $66.3 million for scholarships.
  • More students succeed. ASU ranks #1 among the state’s public universities for its 86% first-year retention rate thanks in part to donor-funded student success initiatives.
  • And donors helped ASU offer more than 4,500 hours of free tutoring.

We choose to invest in ASU because of its agility, speed and focus on innovation. The Swette Center engages in cross-disciplinary research and collaborates with many partners, including private sector leaders, to create food systems change.”
