Connecting the particle physics universe to present day observables 

The Cosmology Initiative at ASU bridges the School of Earth and Space Exploration (SESE) and the Physics Department, two academic units in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, and represents a major new national program. In the next few years, we anticipate building to over 20 faculty members whose research activities include experimental, observational and theoretical cosmology, creating one of the broadest and deepest cosmology programs in the country. In true ASU spirit, our top-notch research and teaching programs are matched by our vibrant outreach activities under the banner of the Beyond Center.
