Mission

The Marc Lindenberg Center for Humanitarian Action, International Development and Global Citizenship 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 that address issues related to globalization, such as:

•Widespread humanitarian crises

•Extreme poverty afflicting more than one billion of the world's population

•Environmental challenges

•Health crises

And many other problems that flow across national borders
By pursuing original research and working on other academic research activities, the Lindenberg Center enables students, faculty, and the broader community to more clearly understand connections between poverty, hunger, and disease, and equips them with the skills and knowledge to create a better, more humane world.
