We are Building Bridges Across Duke and the Atlantic
One of Duke University’s central missions is to encourage students to explore beyond disciplinary lines, both in research and coursework. In creating the Duke Atlantic Partnership, we’ve taken that message to heart and united across Duke institutions in Durham and in Europe. Our project aims to support faculty and students in their quest to build or extend their networks and to integrate collaborative, cross-school experiences into their programs, and thus increase the number of individuals in the Duke community whose educational experience reflects one of the university’s signature commitments.
To that end, the Duke Atlantic Partnership works to connect Duke researchers and affiliates in Europe and the United Kingdom through novel forums, cutting-edge corporate education, and experimental approaches to problem-solving on both sides of the Atlantic. We bring together researchers, corporate leaders, and third sector innovators to share information, resources, and solutions applicable to our shared policy and environmental challenges. Our core staff and advisors come from several different Duke institutions: Sanford School of Public Policy, Fuqua School of Business, Nicholas School of the Environment, and Duke Law School.
The partnership was founded in 2016 by Alexandra E. Sutton and Sierra Smucker, with generous support from the Sanford School of Public Policy’s Innovation & Impact Fund as well as gifts of support from the Nicholas School of the Environment, the Fuqua School of Business, the Natural Resources Defense Council, and Duke Corporate Education’s London Office. Pledges of further support have been received from the Duke Alumni Club of London and the Duke London Women’s Forum.
Whether you’re permanently in London or just passing through, we’d love to hear from you.
