STUDENTS HELP CARTERET COUNTY CLEAN UP AFTER FLORENCE
Last weekend, 48 Duke undergraduate and graduate students traveled to Beaufort to join eight Duke Marine Lab students to help our Carteret County neighbors in their Hurricane Florence cleanup. Nancy Kelly, who helped organize the trip as part of Duke’s relief efforts, deserves some recognition alongside staff volunteers Melissa Adragna, Elizabeth Demattia, Laura Lipps, Rachel Lo Piccolo, Sean Rowe, Morgan Rudd, Park Watson and Danielle Waples.
CAGLE LEADS D&I TRIP FOR LOCAL ORGANIZATIONS
Nicki Cagle partnered with Paul James from Duke’s Office of Institutional Equity and a team from the Triangle Land Conservancy to lead members of local community organizations on a trip to historic Stagville. The experience, part of Diversity and Equity in Environmental Programs (DEEP), brought together organizations working at the intersection of the environment, STEM, and diversity and inclusion to learn about the connections between history and current land tenure while also exploring the implications of race, history and modern conservation efforts.
