Northwestern Buffett Institute for Global Affairs

Collaborative Problem-Solving

At Northwestern Buffett, we believe we must work together across disciplinary, professional, national, and cultural boundaries to respond to the critical global issues of our time. 

We create opportunities for dialogue across disciplines—humanities, social sciences, business, law, STEM, and the arts—and we expand collaborations to include international scholars and experts from global civil society, policy worlds, industry, and the arts. We collectively define questions and set the direction for research.

Collaborate with Buffett

Join us in breaking down barriers and dismantling intellectual silos. Be a part of our efforts not only to identify but to address gaps in response to our shared global challenges. It is only together that we can anticipate and navigate the future environmental disasters, political and military conflicts, economic crises, and persisting threats to social justice.
