"Four years after the experience, I view my decision to become a Duke CTPP fellow as one of the best things I have done, professionally and personally, in my 25 year career.
The lessons I learned and the connections I made as a Duke CTPP fellow have benefitted me at every turn. I continue to lean on advice and perspective from faculty within the fellowship, the Sanford School of Public Policy, Fuqua and Duke Law."
CAPT Jamie Sands
"I believed the Fellowships were a perfect opportunity to do just that--to expose bright young Americans to career military officers, providing opportunities for both sides to challenge and learn from each other. I could not have been more pleased with the result--I have formed lifelong relationships with young Duke students and their families who, frankly, we now consider family."
COL Lawrence G. Ferguson
"The Counterterrorism and Public Policy fellowship experience exceeded all expectations! Duke provided an unmatched opportunity to learn about subjects normally unavailable in the military’s resident institutions. Faculty and students welcomed us at every opportunity and adopted us in the classroom as fellow Blue Devils. My experience at Duke certainly helped me better appreciate the challenges involved in formulating and implementing public policy, which I have put to good use participating in the development of strategic guidance for the Army in my current job on the Army staff."
COL Geoff Stewart
"This experience was 100% about relationships - and I continue to value the connections I was able to make with Duke faculty and students outside of the traditional Sanford school network. Even now, as the commander of a Stryker Brigade Combat Team, it is rare that a week goes by that I don't reference an experience or conversation from my time in the fellowship program. "
COL Jasper Jeffers
