Durham, N.C. — After spending this spring at Harvard University, former Gov. Beverly Perdue will spend next fall at Duke University, school officials said Friday.
Perdue will serve as a distinguished visiting fellow at Duke's Sanford School of Public Policy, where she will participate in the intellectual life of the school, engage with Duke faculty and share insights from her life in politics with students and faculty. She also will serve as an adviser to the Duke Center for Child and Family Policy.
“Her extensive experience in state politics is invaluable," Bruce Kuniholm, dean of the Sanford School, said in a statement. "We envision her speaking with classes, interacting one-on-one with students and helping our professors better understand how their public policy research can influence policy-making. At the same time, she will be able to explore her passions for education and technology with some of the nation’s best scholars on these subjects.”
Perdue is serving as a resident fellow in the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University during the spring semester.
