Nicholas Institute 2021 Annual Report - Meeting the Moment

Since its founding in 2005, Duke University's Nicholas Institute for Environmental Policy Solutions has proven to be something unique in the academic world.

The Nicholas Institute builds bridges that connect Duke's scholarly research with policy makers to identify innovative solutions to critical environmental and energy challenges. As you'll read in the 2021 Annual Report, that vital work was as strong as ever over the last year, despite the challenges of a worldwide pandemic.

On July 1, the Nicholas Institute began the process of merging with the Duke University Energy Initiative. The move is part of a university-wide effort to bolster Duke’s already substantial commitment to advancing solutions for climate change and its impacts. Our two organizations share a similar focus and a commitment to interdisciplinarity, and we have a long history of collaboration. The merger will leverage our complementary strengths and expansive networks to bring even more value to our respective stakeholders, both within the university and beyond.
