Bass Connections

Bass Connections brings together Duke faculty and students to explore real-world issues in interdisciplinary research teams.

Companies, governments and organizations are looking for graduates with training and experience tackling complex issues. Through Bass Connections, Duke is channeling its unique culture of collaboration, ambitious entrepreneurial spirit and established record of applying classroom learning to pressing global problems, to create a distinctive new model for education.

Each project is a collaboration between two or more schools, institutes, and initiatives, bringing together students and faculty from diverse and interdisciplinary backgrounds. Below are some of the recent projects involving Science & Society students and faculty.
