The Consortium for Biosocial Complex Systems at ASU falls under the umbrella of the university's Complex Adaptive Systems Initiative. Overseen by Sander van der Leeuw – a pioneer in the application of the complex adaptive systems approach to socio-environmental challenges – the consortium brings together three research units of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. Through the integrated efforts of the researchers at the Center for Social Dynamics and Complexity, the Center for the Study of Institutional Diversity and the Mathematical, Computational and Modeling Sciences Center, the consortium is tasked with generating fresh insight into global challenges and transforming their findings into real-life applications that improve the human condition.
