Exploring their new home
Dining with faculty and administrators
Hearing from alumni
Students heard from 5 alumni on their decision to attend Duke University, their experiences on campus, and their reflections since graduation. The panelists also gave recommendations in how to get involved in politics, citizenship, and democracy on campus and beyond.
- Sofia Girvin (PPS '22), Project Coordinator at Civitas Public Affairs
- John Harwood ('78), Journalist
- Jasmine Masand (MPP '21), Health Policy Advisor for Senator Maggie Hassan
- Arturo Reyes (PPS '18), Legislative Assistant, U.S. Representative Valerie Foushee (NC-04)
- Jaquell Sneed-Adams (MPP '23), Consultant, Rio Partners
Exercising civil discourse and debate
Students participated in an immersive and collaborative debate hosted by Braver Angels, ACTA and BridgeUSA. These debates teach students to honor ideological diversity, foster civil discourse on college campuses, and cultivate student and faculty leaders to carry the movement forward. The students chose to debate whether extremist rhetoric should be regulated in the media and the implications these regulations would have on free speech.
Exploring the United States Capital
Learning the importance of democracy
On the last day in D.C., students were able to tour the U.S. Capitol or visit one of three museums including the National Museum of African American History and Culture, the National Museum of the American Indian, or the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum.
