Welcome to The Triple Helix at Arizona State University!
We publish The Science in Society Review, a biannual student research journal, along with host science policy events and record podcast episodes. We provide opportunities for students to critically examine issues involving science, society, business, ethics and law.

The Triple Helix is an international non-profit organization with 27 chapters on five continents involving over 800 students from universities that include Yale, Harvard, London School of Economics, National University of Singapore and Cambridge. Its overall goal is to produce one of the highest quality undergraduate publications possible, and showcase the voices of hundreds of undergraduate students on some of the most pressing modern issues in the interactions between science and society. This unprecedented student-run forum for discussion and interdisciplinary thought enables students with a diversity of intellectual interests and backgrounds from all over the world to collaborate and communicate.
With almost 100 members, the Triple Helix at Arizona State University is one of the strongest and most productive chapters in the organization. Since the chapter’s formation in fall 2005, we have produced eight issues of The Science in Society Review which showcases the excellent writing of our undergraduates who have investigated the interdisciplinary links between science, society, business, ethics, and law. We have conducted science policy events to encourage undergraduate students to recognize the increasing impact of science on politics and government. Additionally, we are the first chapter within the entire organization to develop and produce the Triple Helix Forum podcast, where we interview local scientists and researchers who are asking innovative and interdisciplinary questions about the world around us.
