Challenge 2050 Project

By the year 2050, the global human population is projected to exceed 9 billion people. This is our 2050 Challenge. It requires innovative development of interdisciplinary solutions to complex, global challenges. We need you, our future global leaders, to address the challenges we face as a global community.

Our Mission: To equip undergraduate learners with the competencies, behaviors, and attitudes for solving global complex problems through interdisciplinary experiences and application.
Our Vision: Students who are impacted by the Challenge 2050 Project will become confident leaders who think critically and creatively to understand and address the challenges of our world.
