20 years later, ‘The West Wing’ still holds up

(11/14/19 5:00am)

Twenty years after it first premiered, “The West Wing” remains one of the most influential shows in modern TV history. The show not only set the standard for sky-high production budgets (around $3 million an episode) and pioneered the “walk and talk” technique, but it also inspired thousands of young liberals to take up politics and, for better or for worse, helped shape how they currently work within American institutions. In fact, some of the show’s biggest fans are former Obama administration staffers. A popular podcast entitled “The West Wing Weekly” underscores the lasting impact of the show, managing to draw in guests including Senators Tammy Duckworth and Bob Casey, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and South Bend, Ill., mayor and presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg.







Start-Up University: Going beyond a 'Duke education in China'

(11/15/19 6:54am)

Undergraduate students at Duke Kunshan University (DKU) in China will be contributing written and multimedia content to The Chronicle to be published every other Friday. DKU, a joint venture university between Duke and Wuhan University in China, began its undergraduate program in 2018 and currently enrolls over 550 students from 40+ countries. DKU students receive Duke undergraduate degrees and become part of Duke’s alumni network. We are eager to get the word out about Duke Kunshan and the people, programs and unique perspectives of the community there through this upcoming series of biweekly articles, op-eds, and more. 








Letter: Why are there no students on Trask's replacement committee?

I am writing to express my surprise that the search committee for a new Executive Vice President will include no students, as was reported in the Chronicle. For a position with such a substantial impact on the future of Duke University, I would think that having student voices in the room when the decision is made about who to hire is vital.
