Faculty and Researchers

NDIGD serves as a bridge between faculty research and teaching interests, and the global development community. Increasingly, research and learning are core tenants of development programs. Through NDIGD, the University is well positioned to respond to this need while advancing the research agenda of its faculty. NDIGD actively seeks funding opportunities for faculty to advance global development in the sciences, technology, engineering, health, business, economics, political science, and other social sciences.
