Solutions across disciplines

Our mission is to bridge the gap between the biological, mathematical, environmental, and social sciences.  At the Levin Center, we train the next generation of researchers to focus on solutions rather than academic disciplines.


Welcome to the Levin Center.  We are home to two long running summer programs:  the Joaquin Bustoz Math-Science Honors Program, and the Quantitative Research in the Life and Social Sciences Summer Research Experience for Undergraduates.  These two long-running programs serve Arizona high school students and undergraduates from across the nation.

Our PhD program, Applied Mathematics in the Life and Social Sciences, has moved to the School of Complex Adaptive Systems (SCAS)   This move to the College of Global Futures strengthens the degree’s focus on complex problems and interdisciplinary solutions.  We will continue to work with these students to support them as they complete their doctoral degrees.  SCAS is currently reviewing program curriculum and looks forward to welcoming new students in 2024.

ASU SIAM Chapter Wants You!

The Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM) Student Chapter at Arizona State University provides activities and opportunities for students to share their research, learn new skills, and create networks with current and future mathematicians. Please visit their website as they host events during the semester aimed at supporting mathematics scholars.

The Joaquin Bustoz Math-Science Honors Program is an intense academic program that provides motivated students an outstanding opportunity to begin university mathematics and science studies before graduating high school. The program is designed to provide a successful university experience for students who are underrepresented in the mathematics and science fields and to enhance their prospects for future academic success.

The Quantitative Research in the Life and Social Sciences Program (QRLSSP)—formerly MTBI supports the development of students through educational, research and mentorship activities from the undergraduate to the postdoctoral level. Its programs include intensive summer research training programs, long-term support for alumni, continuous research opportunities for undergraduate, graduate and postdoctoral students and opportunities for national and international visitors.
