A Student-Alumni Networking Reception was held on Monday, Feb. 27th, hosted by Sanford Career Services, the Embark Program, and Sanford Development and Alumni Relations office.

Attendees were grouped according to their policy area of interest and engaged in discussions on current policy issues.
Thank you to our amazing alumni volunteers who served on panels in February.
Your participation brings invaluable knowledge and experience to the table for students, and we greatly appreciate your efforts.

Alumni you can help enhance the public policy classroom experience.
Would you be interested in collaborating with Duke students on actual policy issues? The Duke Sanford Policy Lab offers hands-on experiences for students to work on developing research memos that answer questions from policymakers, non-profit organizations, issue advocates, and community leaders. If you are a policymaker or issues advocate who would like to partner with Policy Lab.

It is with a very heavy heart that we share that Corey Gradin, daughter of Elise Goldwasser, our Director of Undergraduate Internships, and her husband Harlan Gradin, passed away on February 24 at the age of 26 following a life-long illness. Corey was strong, courageous, and a beautiful young woman who lived her life to the fullest.
Elise has been a member of Sanford community for over 20 years and is well-loved and respected. Her passion and care for the undergraduate students are unmatched and she has touched hundreds of lives.
Please keep Corey's family in your thoughts during this difficult time. For further information, please contact Dr. Nadia Chamberlin.
