The Sheila and Robert Challey Institute for Global Innovation and Growth aims to advance understanding in the areas of innovation, trade, institutions and human potential to identify policies and solutions for the betterment of society.
A world where economic opportunity and flourishing are available to all.
We are an interdisciplinary institute housed in the College of Business at North Dakota State University. We serve the entire NDSU campus and seek to extend beyond the academy to impact the broader public. We work to achieve our mission by:
Engaging in peer-reviewed research aimed at important questions surrounding opportunity and flourishing
Sharing research results in a variety of formats and outlets to enhance understanding by policymakers and the general public
Providing student programming that enhances student understanding of the foundations of economic opportunity and flourishing
The Challey Institute serves as an umbrella organization for a network of centers and programs commited to economic opportunity and flourishing at NDSU. Affiliated organizations pursue a joint mission and collaborate on student programming, research, and outreach efforts.
The Center for the Study of Public Choice and Private Enterprise (PCPE) is a Challey Institute-affiliated center in the Department of Agribusiness and Applied Economics. You can learn more about the Center's mission on the PCPE website.
