About the Buffett Institute

The Buffett Institute addresses critical global issues through collaborative research, public dialogue, and engaged scholarship.

Collaborative research

Faculty members and graduate students from across the University collaborate on international, interdisciplinary scholarship. We are home to subject-specific programs and working groups, and we support research projects and publications.

Public dialogue

We promote dialogue on international affairs by sponsoring or co-sponsoring events including public lectures, conferences, and colloquia. 

Engaged scholarship

Our global engagement programming — including the GESI study abroad program, support for student groups, and career assistance — supports undergraduates who want to make a difference.
