Center for Sustainable Tourism

Welcome to ASU’s Center for Sustainable Tourism

The Center for Sustainable Tourism (CST) is entering its fifth year of conducting research for a changing tourism industry and communities who manage, market and host visitors.  In the past four years, students, faculty and communities have worked together to gather data from visitors, residents, stakeholders, members of organizations, subscribers to media products, and even youth archaeologists, to be deliberate in decision making and create better, more sustainable tourism experiences. 

This website hosts the outcomes of those efforts by our team of tourism faculty, students of all levels, and research partners.  We are active in sharing our findings and creating news that the tourism industry and communities can use.

We continue to be committed to the study of what sustainability means for communities and the tourism industry.  If you or your organization share a similar mission, we’d love to hear from you.
