Team SSRI,

Week 57.

I’m not a county music follower but I was thrilled to hear that Country music singer Mickey Guyton made history last night when she hosted the Academy of Country Music Awards with Keith Urban. The 37-year-old singer from Arlington, Texas, was the first Black woman to host the awards ceremony.

Mark your calendars for April 29 at 1:00 pm. To learn more about Project ROUSE, a collaborative study focusing on work and well-being, and join the discussion on how COVID19 has impacted Duke students, faculty, and staff. Don Taylor, Rachel Kranton, Duncan Thomas, and Tyson Brown make up the faculty team and this project has received lots of support from SSRI staff. Register and submit questions.

The Duke Graduate Academy offers online short courses that introduce Duke graduate and professional students, and postdoctoral fellows to skills, tools, and knowledge that augment their regular coursework/research. These short courses help emerging scholars prepare for high-level research, innovative teaching, leadership, and/or public engagement. SSRI staff are leading some of the courses so please help spread the word!
