Bass Connections is a university-wide initiative to provide students with greater exposure to inquiry across the disciplines, partnership with unlikely fellow thinkers, sustained mentorship in teams, and the chance to experience the intersections of the academy and the broader world. Beginning in fall 2013, students were able to pursue problem-focused pathways through their Duke experience in five initial thematic areas: Brain and Society; Information, Society and Culture; Global Health; Energy; and Education and Human Development.
Staff members in the Nicholas Institute for Environmental Policy Solutions are partnering on projects in the energy theme.
