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.

I opened my phone and go through Instagram on the bus to my 8:30 Chemistry lecture in Gross Hall. I catch up with some friends before finally stumbling upon the Duke Men’s Basketball Instagram. Upon viewing their story, I find that they have been working through drills since early in the morning. Returning to their page later in the day confirms that they have been practicing, performing strength training, and much more. Even though I am only a first-semester freshman, I find it hard to imagine an entire schedule of courses combined with the load of an athletic team. Upon a deeper investigation into the culture of sports teams, I find that integrity is the backbone that holds them together.
Dear Unlicensed Ethicist: Each morning, I see a boy on his Spin scooter swerve onto the sidewalk in order to make it to class with seconds to spare. In addition to violating traffic rules, he hides his scooter in the bushes so that it’s there waiting for him after class. When I asked him what gives, he answered that he doesn’t care if he gets ticketed because he is willing to pay the price for convenience sake. I told him it’s unethical, but he insists that he is playing by the rules since he pays the tickets. Who is right?

In Everything Happens for a Reason: And Other Lies I’ve Loved, historian and Duke Divinity professor Kate Bowler describes what it was like to be diagnosed with Stage IV colon cancer at the age of 35. She writes clearly and honestly about living in the liminal space between wellness and illness, love and suffering, life and death. Her whole book is excellent, but as a fervent member of the Kate Bowler fan club, I can name off the top of my head the part of her book that resonated with me most: right at the end, when she gives a list of things to say (and things not to say) to people who are suffering.
