Sometimes, our most spontaneous decisions also prove to be our best. Unexpectedly, my favorite class this semester is the one I was initially unsure about (and the only one I didn’t need to take, given my major requirements). Intro to Performance Studies with Douglas Jones looks at analyzing performance through different lenses. The assigned readings range from lesser-known-20th-century plays to analytical essays seeking to link performance to ritual to its need for human survival. Our class discussions are enough to invigorate me for the week.

I believe our relationship to science education is overwhelmingly transactional. We sit in a chair, have information presented, imprint it in the old noggin and then are tested on how well we’ve remembered said information. It’s like a file transfer, only most of the files kinda get corrupted or I accidentally drop the USB stick into a puddle of soup. While this form of instruction is not limited to the sciences, it’s most common for teaching big, foundational subjects like calculus, computer science or inorganic chemistry.

A popular vacation destination for many Duke students after classes get out in May, the Myrtle Beach, S.C., area has developed into a favorite location for the Blue Devils’ baseball squad.

I am shocked and saddened by the plan to close the Duke Herbarium — one of the most important resources in my Duke experience from 2002 to 2013. For my honors thesis, I collected mosses in the North Carolina swamps, and my work study was funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) to digitize herbarium specimens. It was a transformative experience to see the natural world beyond the classroom, and it launched me toward my current position as a professor and herbarium director. I see the passion among this generation’s college students to solve the major climate and biodiversity challenges we face. Yet, while worldwide interest in collections as a tool for climate research is rising, Duke is removing its herbarium from campus and diminishing its students' preparation to be the future leaders we need to address the climate crisis.
