Duke Political Union endorses Ibrahim Butt for Young Trustee

(02/07/20 8:24pm)

Duke Political Union is excited to announce our endorsement of Ibrahim Butt for Young Trustee. We believe Ibby will represent the interests of DPU and the larger Duke community as a young voice on the Board of Trustees. His prior experience as a student representative on the board makes him an extremely qualified candidate. DPU is enthusiastic about his commitment to academic freedom and values his ability to criticize decisions made about Duke Kunshan University in this fight for academic freedom for all students. We believe Ibby brings a critical global perspective to the board and will continue his incredible history of advocacy work to ensure all voices are heard in the Boardroom. DPU would also like to thank Maryam, Leah and Tim, who all shared inspiring messages and would be fantastic stewards of this University.

The conflict of a conservative: Bernie Sanders

(02/07/20 5:00am)

I can’t help but like Bernie Sanders. I‘m convinced of his sincerity, of his genuine yearning for an equitable America. I admire his dogged commitment, a character trait that is manifest in his established record of ideological consistency. I am reassured by the urgency he exudes, believing as I do in the precarity of our present moment. Although I am not quite “feeling the Bern,” I’ll say this: Sanders is the sole Democrat I would consider supporting.

The Chapel itself seems to stare intensely at the bird through whose eyes we are looking, spreading its stone wings of academic and residential cottages in direct challenge to the feathers of our avian proxy.
