The Arthur L. Irving Institute for Energy and Society is a leader in transforming humankind’s understanding of issues at the intersection of energy and society, and a driver in the creation of ideas, technologies, and policies that will improve the availability and efficient use of energy for every person on the planet. To attain this ambitious goal, the Irving Institute will work to produce academic scholarship of unimpeachably high quality and relevance and will have the education of Dartmouth students at its core. The institute will be a hub for collaboration involving faculty and students from across academic disciplines, and will prepare the next generation of energy experts who have a deep understanding of North American and global energy issues.
