The Marc Lindenberg Center was established in 2002 to better prepare students, faculty, and staff at the University of Washington for life and work in a global society.
Through teaching and research, the Lindenberg Center seeks multidisciplinary approaches to address widespread issues relating to globalization:
- Humanitarian crises and conflicts
- Extreme poverty and hunger (afflicting more than one billion people worldwide)
- Environmental challenges and climate change
- Health crises and sanitation
- Agricultural policy and food supply
By pursuing original research and working on other academic activities, the Lindenberg Center enables students, faculty, and the broader community to more clearly understand connections between poverty, hunger, and disease, and to equip them with the skills and knowledge to create a better, more humane world.
The Center is named in honor of Marc Lindenberg, a former dean and professor at the Evans School, who devoted his career to improving lives through direct action, teaching, research, and fostering a sense of personal responsibility in the lives and careers of his students and colleagues.
