Vince Price- has officially been on the job 72 hours.
10:08:20 Duke u. IS AN institution I’ve admired from afar for many many years. Just the excitement of the community, the ability to work with one of the world’s finest faculties, an enormously 30 collection of students, hardworking staff in a region that’s a wonderful place. I couldn’t be happier.(40)
Relationship with city of Durham
10:10:02-07 this is all about relationships and so in the role as president, ii hope to strengthen the partnerships with the city and the region.
10:10:54 my princpal role in the first year is to learn as much as I can and then develop a sensible strategic plan moving forward.

10:12:24 it’s a matter of great national concern and great local concern.
10:12:27 this is not a case of spending a year or two and thinking about this and revising policies This is a matter of focus every single year and asking ourselves repeatedly how well are we doing on this front and what more can we do to make this the kind of community we hope this will be. A safe and helathy community for every student. (47)
10:13:05 there are ways we can be caring and compassionate to victims and the accused alike.
