North Dakota State University Announces the Launch of the Challey Institute for Global Innovation and Growth

Today, North Dakota State University (NDSU) announced the establishment and launch of a new interdisciplinary research institute on campus. The transformative Challey Institute for Global Growth will focus on research in the areas of global innovation, trade, and economic growth.

The Charles Koch Foundation’s gift of $10 million joins donations from other NDSU benefactors in support of the institute.

NDSU President, Dean L. Bresciani commented:

“The problems we face in the global economy related to trade, immigration, and economic volatility are some of the most pressing issues we face as a nation and certainly in the Midwest, where we are particularly reliant on international markets and face serious workforce shortages. Establishing this institute allows us to bring together the disciplines and people needed, in the right part of our country and at the right institution in NDSU, to deal with these challenges.”
