Christine Vogt is Director of the Center for Sustainable Tourism in the School of Community Resources and Development, Watts College of Public Service and Community Solutions, at Arizona State University. She currently holds the rank of Professor and began her career at ASU as an assistant professor from 1993 to 1998 and then moved to Michigan State University from 1999 to 2015. Vogt holds a BS in Accounting and PhD in Leisure Studies from Indiana University.  Her Masters degree is from University of St. Thomas (St. Paul, MN) in Business Communications.  She holds a CPA and CMA and worked for many years in industry as a financial analyst. She serves on two academic journal boards in tourism and leisure research.

Vogt has been conducting research for over 20 years in the areas of recreation, parks, tourism, and natural resources, more specifically in the area of tourism and recreation planning; development and marketing; and community assessment in rural and urban areas. She has conducted research at local, state and federal levels primarily in Michigan, Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Missouri, New Mexico, Indiana, Illinois, and New York. In 2014 she held a fellowship with Singapore National Parks where she conducted research on the social value of parks. Her expertise is consumer behavior and experiences, information search and decision-making (including marketing communications and web services), and evaluation and survey research. Examples of recent foci of research studies include:  place-making, community vibrancy, urban-rural interface communities, regional conservation plans, urban redevelopment areas, resident involvement in tourism planning, environmentally-friendly transportation infrastructure (trails, safe routes to school), active and health living, and examining tourism supply and demand at a county or community-level.

A number of the projects Dr. Vogt has worked on are relevant to the development and marketing of the Desert Discovery Center. She led one “discovery center” proposal with a friends group in partnership with a local community, regional convention and visitor bureau, and a U.S. Fish and Wildlife refuge. Some additional projects with U.S. Forest Service have aimed to redevelop urban sites, as extreme as an old military manufacturing site (Midewin National Tallgrass Prairie outside of Chicago) or one of the world’s largest landfills (Freshkills located on Staten Island NYC), into park sites with tourist drawing power to enhance tourism economic benefits.
