We believe that relationships – among individuals and institutions, globally and locally – can fuel knowledge and develop solutions to global challenges.
Northwestern Buffett provides the institutional support needed to bring together and catalyze new ideas.
A New Model for Research
Buffett's multi-stage research trajectory starts with dialogue. Faculty from across the University explore real-world problems from interdisciplinary perspectives. To continue work on the topic, discussion groups can participate in our Idea Incubation Workshop, a three-day event to plan for ongoing collaboration as funded Buffett Working Groups. Watch the video to see our process in action.
Northwestern Buffett is an integrated organization with offices that facilitate global learning and research and serve international students, scholars, and faculty. It also plays a key role in developing and implementing Northwestern's global strategic plan.
