In September, my CASE colleagues and I unveiled a brand new program called the Duke CASE Change Academy. (If you missed the announcement, see the program details here.) We received 34 outstanding applications for the Academy's 6 slots, which left us with a tough decision to make. Today I am thrilled to announce the winners.
