What is the Beyond the Lab program?
The Beyond the Lab program is an extension of the Humanities Lab, and more specifically faculty-student team collaborations. Beyond the Lab is designed to support students who wish to further develop their Lab’s impact outcomes beyond the semester’s end, with the mentorship, guidance and expertise of the faculty.

Students from the Fall ’20 Disrupting Dis/Ability Lab built upon their Lab’s original impact outcome – developing a new layer on ASU’s Interactive Campus Map – through the Humanities Lab’s Beyond the Lab program. Their now active Accessibility layer spans all four metro Phoenix campuses and helps individuals identify accessible restrooms, building entrances and universal changing tables through the click of a button.
