Google and Arizona State University are in the process of building several long-term partnerships. The internet search giant and ASU are hooking up to work on Google Mars, email at ASU and other campus-based research projects. The email project includes Gmail-powered email for students.

ASU announced this week it will switch all of its e-mail and instant messaging to Google Apps for Education by January. The Google program provides shared calendar services, indexed e-mails, better spam filtering and 2-gigabyte storage space for each student.
