CASTLE is regularly engaged in a variety of specific projects and we enjoy being a global leader . Some of these projects are ongoing and some have specific beginning and ending points. The projects are identified and initiated by various elements of the CASTLE community and approved by the directors. 

Some of these projects are made possible through the support of both financial and operations partners. We are very thankful for all the support that CASTLE related projects have received and are always welcoming to new opportunities to make the world a better place.  

The Current CASTLE Projects are below with archived and spin-off projects listed at the bottom.

CASTLE wants to connect the scholars all over the world that are doing research on issues at the intersection of technology, leadership, and education. Headed by Dr. Helen Wang, in this series we interviewed scholars all over the world to learn a bit more about them and help connect them to other scholars.
