Lisa Borders Commencement speaker

By Nathan Luzum Senior Editor

Lisa Borders, Trinity ‘79 and former president of the WNBA and TIME’S UP, will address the Class of 2019 at Sunday’s Commencement ceremony. Borders will join senior Leah Rosen, the student speaker, onstage to bid goodbye to more than 6,100 graduates. “I am blessed to have been offered the opportunity to deliver this year’s Commencement Address,” Borders wrote in an email to The Chronicle. “The world is complex and dynamic. These new grads will be our Duke family’s most recent contribution to help enlighten, enable and elevate humanity.” Growing up in Atlanta, Ga., as the granddaughter of influential pastor and civil rights leader William Holmes Borders, Sr., she would watch her grandfather preach as Martin Luther King Jr. sat in attendance. She became friends with King’s children, who also frequented her grandfather’s sermons, and is still close with them. One of her most striking childhood memories was attending King’s funeral procession with her grandfather. “I was probably 40 before I understood that was real history. And that I witnessed it,” she told Vanity Fair. In seventh grade, Borders’ parents enrolled her as one of seven African Americans at Westminster School, a K-12 Christian academy that was integrating.

Among more than 1,700 students at the school, Borders was seen as an outsider— nonetheless, she became a cheerleader and class president her junior year. Borders enrolled at Duke in the mid-1970s originally planning to study chemistry and become a physician, following in her father and aunt’s footsteps. After a change of heart, she graduated from Duke in 1979 with a degree in French before moving to Boston and then back home to Atlanta. She soon earned a master’s degree in health administration from the University of Colorado. Borders worked for two health care firms and founded her own consulting firm, but she moved on to politics in the early 2000s. As president of the Atlanta City Council and vice mayor of Atlanta from 2004 to 2010, she played a role in forming the Atlanta Dream in Georgia’s capital as a WNBA expansion team. From 2008 to 2013, she served as president of the Grady Health Foundation, where she oversaw a five-year campaign that brought in $325 million for the Grady Health System, Georgia’s largest public hospital. Borders lost the race for Atlanta mayor in 2009 but became vice president of global community affairs at The Coca-Cola Company in 2013. She became a member of Duke’s Board of Trustees in 2015 and president of the WNBA one year later. Under her leadership, the WNBA had

its highest regular season attendance in six years in 2017 and highest TV ratings in four years in 2018. The league also introduced the “Take a Seat, Take a Stand” initiative, for which it donates a portion of ticket sales to organizations focused on girls’ and women’s empowerment. Borders resigned from her position with the WNBA in October 2018 to take the reins of TIME’S UP—an organization founded in response to accusations of abuse and misconduct in the entertainment industry. Days after she was announced as the

Commencement speaker in February, Borders resigned from her position as the organization’s inaugural CEO after her son was accused of sexual assault. She currently serves as the CEO of the management consultant firm LMB Group, LLC, and chair of the Borders Commission, a task force of the United States Olympic Committee charged with reviewing the USOC’s interaction with the 49 national governing bodies and determining how the committee can better See BORDERS on Page 22

Leah Rosen Student speaker

By Maria Morrison Staff Reporter

Hanging on the wall of her bedroom back home is a poem that senior Leah Rosen wrote in fourth grade. Titled “Where I’m From,” it lists trademarks of her childhood—rainy days in the Pacific Northwest, weekend soccer games and a growing love of medicine fostered by her parents. Although much has changed since Rosen was an 8-year-old living in Oregon, she still writes and loves poetry. And she will be delivering a poem to the University as the student commencement speaker during graduation May 12. Alongside Rosen will be Lisa Borders, former president and CEO of TIME’S UP, who was chosen to be the Commencement address speaker in February. Her poem was selected from many speeches submitted by undergraduate and graduate students. It “stood out” to the selection committee as appealing to all graduate candidates and members of the audience, even though Rosen wrote it to herself in a Duke course. Even though she was not a student enrolled in the course, Rosen, as a teaching assistant, participated in the class’s final project: writing a poem to Duke that featured one’s best and more imperfect moments. “To a lot of people, poetry is a great way of capturing a feeling that prose just can’t,” Rosen said. The poem describes the difference between “being” and “doing,” something Rosen thinks

everyone in both academia and the workforce can relate to. “Parents in the audience might be surprised to hear everything in the poem,” Rosen said. “As students, we don’t want to tell our parents, ‘I’m stressed. I’m overworked. My heart isn’t in what I’m doing.’” During her first year, she explained that she “fell into the trap”—in which many Duke students find themselves—of becoming “completely overwhelmed by your work.” “It chews you up, spits you out and tells you to do better,” Rosen said. However, after going abroad to London during the Fall of her junior year, Rosen

experienced more global culture and made deeper personal connections. She reevaluated how she was spending her time and reflected on her motivations. “Learning shouldn’t be just about copying and studying, it should be about experiences,” Rosen said. “This poem is about the understanding of being and who you are and how that relates to what you do.” Whereas during her first two years Rosen cared primarily about schoolwork, she has since realized that the people at Duke are what makes it special, resulting in her last year being the happiest yet. Her favorite times at Duke mainly revolve

around her friends, from taking her German roommate to Disney World for the first time to going to Mardi Gras in February. “I don’t know if my Duke experience would have been as amazing if I was four years older or younger,” Rosen said. “The people that I’m graduating with are the best. I can’t wait to see what everyone does later in life.” Rosen’s regrets at Duke are limited, but certainly include never tenting and not seeing former President Barack Obama, one of her personal role models, at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill game this year. She aspires to attend medical school, so she took a humanities approach to the pre-medical curriculum at Duke with her Program II major in illness and identity. Specifically, she studies how biological or cultural factors can predispose someone to illness, and how the experience of illness can shape one’s sense of self. Rosen ultimately wants to understand more about the human condition and how it is affected by illnesses. Her Program II advisor Robert Thompson, professor emeritus of psychology and neuroscience, spoke to the “very rewarding experience” of getting to know Rosen. The two have known each other since Rosen took one of his courses as a first-year. “Her intellectual curiosity and passion for ideas are contagious. Her openness and willingness to challenge herself are remarkable, and her commitment to service is a fundamental component of her identity,” Thompson said. “She is one of those special individuals who make a difference in the lives of others.”

2019 Phi Beta Kappa Initiates

Phi Beta Kappa, the nation’s oldest and largest academic honor society, was founded on December 5, 1776 by five students at the College of William and Mary in Williamsburg, Virginia. Since then, it has evolved to become the nation’s leading advocate for arts and sciences at the undergraduate level. Phi Beta Kappa elects over 15,000 new members a year from 286 prestigious chapters across the United States. The Society’s distinctive emblem, a gold key with the letters Phi Beta Kappa as the Greek initials of the motto of the society, “Love of learning is the guide of life,” is widely recognized as a symbol of academic achievement. The Duke Chapter, Beta of North Carolina, was formed in 1920 at Trinity College. We are delighted to receive into membership the following: Sanjidah Ahmed

Freshman Year: 2015-2016 By Staff Reports The Chronicle

Freshman year was characterized by the completion of major construction projects, student activism sparking campus-wide discussions and a bowl win for Duke football. Devil’s Krafthouse—the first vendor of the newly-renovated West Union—opened after more than two and a half years of construction, and the entire West Union was expected to be fully operational in July. A renovated Marketplace, Rubenstein Library and Page Auditorium reopened at the beginning of the year. The University also announced that construction of a new East Campus dorm, replacing Epworth, Jarvis and East House, would begin in August. The Chapel was closed for renovations during the 2015-16 academic year, but reopened May 11 after a $19.2 million project to restore the Chapel’s stained glass windows, replace the roof and improve the electrical system. A $25 million gift from David Rubenstein, Trinity ‘70 and chair of the Board of Trustees, helped fund the construction of a new $50-million, 71,000-square-foot Arts Center at Duke. Construction continues on the new Student Health and Wellness Center. The main quadrangle was renamed Abele Quadrangle in recognition of Julian Abele, the black architect of Duke’s original campus. The renaming occurred after students presented administrators with demands in two community forums addressing racial issues on campus. The forums followed the defacement of a Black Lives Matter flyer and a death threat and homophobic slur made against a Duke student.

Student protesters staged a week-long sitin of the Allen Building to protest alleged discriminatory conditions in the Parking and Transportation Services department. Additional protesters pitched tents outside the building in support for about a month. Students have also protested the Women’s Center’s impending move to East Campus from its current location near the West Campus bus stop. In addition, non-regular rank, non-tenure track faculty filed a petition with the National Labor Relations Board and unionized this year. The union plans to begin negotiations for a collective bargaining agreement with administrators in the Fall. Several incoming first-years refused to read the summer reading book “Fun Home” by Alison Bechdel, saying that some of the graphic images conflicted with their religious beliefs. This year also marked one of the last of President Richard Brodhead’s tenure. Brodhead announced that he would retire at the end of the 2016-17 year after serving 13 years as president. The University saw significant administrative change in other departments as well. Valerie Ashby—dean of the Trinity College of Arts and Sciences—and A. Eugene Washington—president and CEO of Duke University Health System—completed their first years in their positions. This year was also characterized by continued academic engagement from the University and further efforts to enhance students’ potential. Paul Modrich—James B. Duke professor of biochemistry—was awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry, making him the second Duke professor to win a Nobel Prize. Robert Lefkowitz, See FRESHMAN on Page 19

Sophomore Year: 2016-2017 By Staff Reports the Chronicle

Sophomore year featured participation in local and national elections, the announcement of a new University president and an ACC tournament championship for the men’s basketball team. With the excitement of a presidential election, many Duke students participated in civic activity for the first time. Both Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton and Republican nominee Donald Trump visited nearby cities in North Carolina. The Chronicle anonymously polled a representative sample of 920 Duke undergraduates and asked them about their views on the elections. In the poll, Duke students showed a liberal tendency. Almost 76 % of the 920 students planned on voting for Clinton, compared to 6.4 % for Trump. When Trump emerged as the winner, many students were upset and in disbelief. Thereafter, both students and surrounding community members protested Trump’s inauguration. Trump’s executive orders banning immigration from Muslim-majority countries also incited protest. Additionally, several faculty members have expressed concern about Trump’s proposed budget, which cut funding from the National Institutes of Health and other research organizations. Students were also engaged in the gubernatorial race between Republican incumbent Pat McCrory and Democratic challenger Roy Cooper. McCrory is most famous for signing into law the highly controversial House Bill 2, which disallowed transgender people from using restrooms aligned with their gender identity. After a close voter margin that led to a contentious legal battle, Cooper won the governorship. Thus far, he had been able to compromise with state Republican leadership on limiting HB2. Just as Trump and Cooper entered their respective

offices, President Richard Brodhead served his last year as president of Duke. The Board of Trustees announced Vincent Price, the provost of the University of Pennsylvania, as the tenth president of Duke University. As part of his transition, Price visited campus several times after the announcement. In addition to Brodhead, David Rubenstein, Trinity ‘70 and chair of the board of trustees, also stepped down from his role at the end of his term July 1. In his last year, Rubenstein donated $20 million to endow the scholarship program for first-generation, low-income students formerly known as the Washington Duke Scholars Program. Now, it will be called David M. Rubenstein Scholars Program. The student body elected a female President of Duke Student Government for the sixth year in a row. Junior Riyanka Ganguly, formerly vice president for equity and outreach, spoke of the importance of activism and advocacy in her campaign. DSG elections this year faced low voter turnout compared to previous years, but not necessarily compared to the student government

elections at peer institutions. Sophomore year also saw the opening of West Union after more than two years of construction. Containing 13 new eateries, West Union presented a financial threat to the food trucks, some of which have left campus altogether. Still, Duke Dining was named best in the nation for college food. Additionally, the new Student Health and Wellness Center opened in January. However, some students have had issues with accessibility. That year, faculty considered a new undergraduate curriculum, which would remove the foreign language requirement and not count Advanced Placement courses for credit. Many departments— especially in foreign languages—had issues with the new curriculum. In April, Valerie Ashby, dean of the Trinity College of Arts and Sciences, explained that the Arts and Sciences Council will take a pause on the curriculum to evaluate the next steps to revamp the Trinity curriculum. The University also faced its fair share of scandals, primarily involving lawsuits. A former lab analyst at Duke accused faculty and administrators of mishandling allegations of research misconduct, which could have lead the University to pay close to $600 million in fines. The University brought forth a motion to dismiss the lawsuit, which a federal judge rejected. A men’s soccer player also filed a lawsuit against Duke and Stephen Bryan, associate dean of students and director of the Office of Student Conduct, for a violation of his due process rights. OSC and Duke’s student conduct process also came under fire from legal experts, as well as former and current students. The football team took a step back in the fall, winning just four games and failing to reach a bowl game for the first time since 2011. But the up-and-down season did have a couple high points See SOPHOMORE on Page 19

Bre Bradham | Editor-in-Chief Students stormed the stage at Price’s address to alumni in April.

Junior year witnessed new aspects of campus life—from the welcoming of a new University president to the softball team playing its inaugural season—and a number of high-profile guests visiting campus. President Vincent Price took office in July as Duke’s 10th president and soon faced a controversial decision about the vandalism of the Robert E. Lee statue outside the Chapel. He ordered the statue’s removal and launched a Commission on Memory and History in September to recommend a replacement for it. The Commission delivered its report in November, and he accepted the recommendation of leaving open the spot in the Chapel’s entrance. Price was formally inaugurated as Duke’s president in

October at a ceremony on Abele Quadrangle, followed by a reception in the Brodhead Center. The night before the inauguration, a carnival named PricePalooza took place on East Campus, which provided a ferris wheel, inflatables and food. In addition, Jack Bovender, Trinity ‘67 and Graduate School ‘69, became the new chair of the Board of Trustees. He took the helm from David Rubenstein, Trinity ‘70, who stepped away after serving as chair since 2013. In early September, a Duke LifeFlight helicopter crashed in eastern North Carolina. A memorial service took place Sept. 20 in the Chapel for the four people who died in the crash. Housing became a topic of serious discussion after Larry Moneta, vice president for student affairs, announced in late September that 2018-2019 will be the last year undergraduate students live on Central Campus. Steve Schewel, Trinity ‘73 and a professor at the Sanford School of Public Policy, became the mayor of Durham after winning the November election. He appointed Jillian Johnson, Trinity ‘03 and his former student, as his mayor pro tempore. In response to President Donald Trump’s plans to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, students established a new organization called Define American for students on DACA and their allies. Some of the students traveled to Washington, D.C., later in November to lobby members of Congress to support protections for individuals affected by the law. In late November, the men’s basketball team jumpstarted their season with a come-from-behind victory against Florida to win the PK80 Invitational’s Motion Bracket in Portland, Ore. They eked out the victory by three points, beating the Gators 87-84. Duke would make it to the Elite Eight of March Madness before bowing out to Kansas in an overtime loss. Coach Mike Krzyzewski also notched his 1,000th win at Duke in a November win over Utah Valley. The team split the regular season rivalry with the Tar Heels before falling to them in the ACC tournament semifinals. Grayson Allen closed out his career in Cameron with a win over the rivals on senior night, but the walk-up line for the game got a bit out of hand. Krzyzewskiville also ran into some issues this year, including an indefinite shutdown being called due to the flu and the line monitors being sued in the Duke Student Government Judiciary. Over winter break, Duke’s football team routed Northern Illinois in the Quick Lane Bowl to take its second bowl win in three years. Duke, which finished the season 7-6, closed the season on a three-game winning streak—the first time since 1962. Duke gained a new varsity sport during junior year as well, with softball officially becoming the University’s 27th varsity sport. The Blue Devils finished the regular season ranked seventh in the ACC and gained their first All-ACC honoree as sophomore pitcher Raine Wilson was named to the conference’s first team. First-years Rachel Abboud and Peyton St. George were also named to the conference’s All-Freshman team. This year also saw the opening of the Rubenstein Arts Center, a new arts facility on campus. Rubenstein funded the creation of the new arts center with $25 million. The opening party in February drew a crowd of 3,000. The building is home to WXDU and the von der Heyden Studio Theater, a theater that has already hosted a production of Chicago. The American See JUNIOR on Page 19

Senior year has seen the renaming of an infamous building, an array of controversies and a star-studded basketball season. In August, the history department filed an official request to rename the Carr Building on East Campus, which houses the department. Named after Julian Carr, a wealthy white supremacist who donated the land that would become East Campus, the building came under fire from history alumni, the People’s State of the University and Duke Student Government. At the December Board of Trustees meeting, the Board decided to officially rename Carr to the Classroom Building, which was the building’s original title. The history department had requested the University rename it after Raymond Gavins, Duke’s first African American history professor. But Duke decided the Classroom name was here to stay until another formal request is filed. Throughout the year, student activists were key in bringing attention to and even changing certain Duke policies. Students received a letter in the fall that said financial aid would not pay for Duke health insurance unless their expected family contribution was $0. After push back, President Vincent Price reversed the decision in a Guest Column. Students also advocated for workers’ rights as well. When housekeepers were forced to work weekends, a student organized a petition to return them to their normal Monday through Friday schedules. Additionally, facilities staff were told they had to rebid for their shifts based solely on seniority, which meant they could have lost their existing shifts and buildings. Administration

later scrapped the rebidding plans. The year also featured a variety of scandals. The first half of the year saw several incidents of hate on campus. A wall at the Mary Lou Williams Center for Black Culture was defaced with a racist slur in August, and a swastika was painted over a mural honoring victims from a shooting in a Pittsburgh synagogue in November. In January, Megan Neely, director of graduate studies for the Master of Biostatistics program, sent an email to the department urging Chinese students to speak English outside of class. She stepped down the day after, when screenshots of the email were posted online. Duke agreed to pay $112.5 million in March to settle a lawsuit alleging that a Duke scientist falsified data that was used to obtain $200 million in research grants. While all these incidents were taking place, Duke was intensely negotiating with regional transit authority GoTriangle about the proposed light rail from Durham to Orange County. The University ultimately announced Feb. 27 it would not sign a cooperation agreement in a letter to GoTriangle, all but killing the project. Duke did not want to give up land alongside Erwin Road in the heart of its medical corridor, and it was concerned about the effects of electromagnetic interference and construction on the medical facilities’ operations. Students and Durham officials were not happy with the University’s decision. But in Cameron Indoor Stadium, freshman phenom Zion Williamson had everyone smiling. For sports, Duke basketball captivated the University and the nation. The team featured R.J. Barrett, Cam Reddish and Zion Williamson, the top three recruits in their class, as well as See SENIOR on Page 20

Duke renames Carr Building By Bre Bradham Editor-in-Chief

The University has stripped Julian Carr’s name from the East Campus building that bore it for nearly 90 years. The change comes four years after Duke renamed Aycock Residence Hall on East Campus because of its namesake’s history and amidst a national conversation about removing Confederate or racist memorials. The Board of Trustees approved removing without dissent Carr’s name at its meeting this weekend, Board Chair Jack Bovender said. The decision was announced to the University in an email from President Vincent Price Saturday afternoon. “Our campus is first and foremost an inclusive community of people, not of classrooms and buildings,” Price wrote in his email to the Duke community. “With each new student or faculty member who arrives here, with each new discovery made or perspective shared, this community grows and evolves to better meet the challenges of its time. The renaming of the Carr Building represents one such evolution, at once a reflection of how our world has changed and a demonstration that our values and bonds will endure far longer than mortar or stone.” The Carr Building will be called the Classroom Building until a new name is chosen. Price told The Chronicle after the Board meeting that he does not have a set time frame for recommending a new name, adding that he is considering the building’s name in conjunction with other memorial

efforts on campus. The Classroom Building was the Carr Building’s original name before it was renamed in honor of Carr in 1930. The decision to revert to the Classroom Building comes after the ad hoc committee did not make a recommendation on a new name, according to the Duke Today release. Instead, the committee deferred the renaming process to the Board of Trustees. In its request to rename the building, the history department asked that it be named after Raymond Gavins, the first African-American professor in the department. The Carr Building’s name came under scrutiny at the beginning of the semester, when Duke’s history department filed a formal

Congratulations Graduates!

request for the name to be reconsidered. The request stemmed from the department’s concerns about Julian Carr, after whom the building was named. Carr donated the land for East Campus to Trinity College—Duke’s predecessor—and served on its Board of Trustees. “It is a reasonable assertion to say that Duke wouldn’t exist were it not for the generosity of Julian Carr. It is also true that he was a virulent white supremacist,” Taylor wrote in an email to The Chronicle in August. “Both of these things are true about Mr. Carr, and I think Duke needs to tell this story explicitly via a full, academically rigorous contextualization of Julian Carr, and then we all need to wrestle with what it means for us today.”

Carr supported the Ku Klux Klan’s violence, and bragged about “horsewhipp[ing] a negro wench until her skirts hung in shreds” because she “publicly insulted and maligned a Southern lady” when he spoke at the dedication of the Silent Sam statue—a Confederate monument pulled down by protesters earlier this semester—at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. The Duke Today release about the name change noted Carr’s contributions of moving Trinity College from Randolph County to Durham in the 1890s, but noted he was “an active proponent of white supremacy throughout his adult life.” “He boasted about being a member of the initial Ku Klux Klan and ran unsuccessfully for the U.S. Senate in 1900 on a white supremacist platform,” the release stated. The push to rename the Carr Building kicked off in the spring, when student protesters included it as one of their demands when they interrupted an alumni reunion event where Price was speaking. After the Robert E. Lee statue was removed from the Chapel steps last year, Price created a formal process for requests to be made concerning names and places of memory on campus. At the beginning of this semester, the history department faculty members—who work in the Carr Building— filed a formal request to strip Carr’s name and requested the building to be renamed in honor of Raymond Gavins. Following the request, support for the See CARR on Page 22

Officials respond to Duke not supporting light rail By Bre Bradham Editor-in-Chief

Duke pumped the brakes on its support of Durham’s light rail plans Wednesday when it informed transit authorities in a letter that it would not sign a cooperation agreement by the Thursday deadline. After two decades of discussions, the plan appears to have stalled as it was coming up on critical funding junctures. Officials criticized the University for the decision as President Vincent Price sent an email to the Duke community Thursday explaining the reasoning and defending Duke’s decision. “While I know that the course of this particular project has caused some to question our commitment to Durham, which pains me greatly, my pledge to serve our community has never been stronger and will only grow,” Price wrote. The light rail project would be a 17.7-mile track connecting North Carolina Central University, Duke and the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill. The current plan for the route would require Duke to cede land; the University was one out of a dozen community partners asked to sign a cooperation agreement by Feb. 28. Duke joined North Carolina Railroad in not committing, according to a WRAL report. But Durham County Commissioner Ellen Reckhow explained Thursday evening that the railroad’s letter was different because it committed to continuing discussions on the subject and indicated that their concerns could be resolved. “The impact of the rail letter is somewhat different,” Reckhow said. “We didn’t view it as a showstopper.” Michael Schoenfeld, vice president for public affairs and government relations, said that Duke’s decision to not sign onto the project was directly related to concerns about the effects of its Erwin Road location on the health system. “This question is about the feasibility, advisability and very real risk to patient safety of running an electric train line 150 feet from the densest corridor of clinical and biomedical

research facilities in the state of North Carolina,” he said. Duke’s rejection is not the only new hurdle the project faces. According to WRAL, the Federal Transit Authority has told GoTriangle that the project’s budget should be upped by another $237 million. “I think there are a number of factors that need to be examined regarding the viability of the light rail project,” Schoenfeld said. “Duke is certainly one of them, but there are others as well.” ‘Staggering betrayal’ Charlie Reece, member of Durham City Council, took to Twitter to lambast the University’s decision. “Duke University is the wealthiest institution in this city, and as such they have a moral obligation to be a good faith partner with the city of Durham in solving our community’s biggest problems,” he wrote on Wednesday. “Today’s decision by Duke to refuse to sign a cooperative agreement for the light rail project is a staggering betrayal of that moral obligation.” Reece went on to point out a contrast between the decision

and Duke’s other points of contact with the city. “These actions are in stark contrast to Duke’s otherwise generous support of the city’s efforts in other areas, including our work to create and preserve affordable homes for low income families,” the councilman wrote. “Duke’s decision to kill the light rail project sadly reinforces the worst fears of many Durham residents—that Duke University is an arrogant and elitist enclave with little interest in being the kind of partner this city needs.” Reckhow said that she had been “cautiously optimistic” about Duke backing the plan, but that there had been a level of concern considering Duke’s comments in recent months. As for how it would affect Duke and Durham’s relationship, she emphasized how long the project has been in the works. “I think emotions are a little raw right now,” Reckhow said. “You have to understand that this is a project we have been planning for two decades, and we actually linked our comprehensive land use plan to transit.” See OFFICIALS on Page 20

Men’s basketball captures 21st ACC tournament championship By Michael Model Sports Editor

CHARLOTTE—One week ago Saturday, the Blue Devils walked off the court in Chapel Hill ready to hit the reset button prior to starting postseason play. Three wins, 81 points and 30 rebounds by Zion Williamson later, it’s safe to say Duke is back at its best. The third-seeded Blue Devils clinched their 21st ACC tournament title after knocking off No. 4 seed Florida State 73-63 Saturday evening at the Spectrum Center. Duke used a 25-11 run in


the opening minutes of the second-half to break open a game that was tied at halftime. Williamson capped his stellar tournament for the Blue Devils with a 21-point, five-rebound performance as Duke collected its first piece of hardware of the 2018-19 campaign. Williamson’s scoring total for the week was a program record for a three-game run in the ACC tournament and earned him MVP honors. Williamson and R.J. Barrett earned a spot on the all-tournament first team and Tre Jones was named to the second team. “It’s an honor for to us win,” head coach Mike Krzyzewski said. “This is the best conference, especially this year, and I’m

proud of my guys. They beat three outstanding opponents, and tonight was a physical, really hard-fought defensive game and our guys played good defense again. So I’m proud of them.” The Blue Devils (29-5) struggled to find consistency out of the gates, missing each of their first eight attempts from the perimeter as Florida State jumped out to a 27-19 advantage. Duke then started to push the tempo and took advantage of eight first-half turnovers from the Seminoles (27-7) to tie the game at 27 and entered halftime tied at 36. Terance Mann hit a triple out of the locker room to give the Seminoles a three-point lead, but the Blue Devils came right back with a classic Duke second-half run. Jones hit a jumper, Williamson hit a pair of layups, Javin DeLaurier hit two at the line and a reverse layup by Jones in transition capped a 10-0 spurt. The Blue Devils took a 46-39 advantage with 16:29 remaining—then their largest of the night. Less than three minutes later, Duke went on another 8-0 spurt to open up a 58-44 advantage, forcing a Florida State timeout with 11:11 remaining. The Blue Devils opened the half with 10 consecutive made 2-pointers and coupled that with stifling defense that held Florida State to just three of its first 15 from the field out of the break. “We came here and we talked to each other like, ‘We came too far just to lose,’” Williamson said of the message at halftime. “You know, it’s a long bus ride. We don’t want to be on no quiet bus ride. We want to be lit and enjoy ourselves, and also we were playing physical, both teams, so we just had to have execution with it and that’s what we did.” The Seminoles fought back and cut the Duke lead to as little as five, using a 12-3 run to trim the deficit to 61-56 with 5:28 remaining—behind a team-high 14 points from ACC Sixth Man of the Year Mfiondu Kabengele—but Florida State could not slow down the Blue Devils enough down the stretch. A bucket by Jones and a 3-pointer by Cam Reddish from the left wing with 1:20 left put the game away. Jones continued his recent attacking mentality on offense, but was more efficient than in past games. The floor general added a season-high 18 points, on 8-of-14 shooting, while racking up six assists in the process. “I feel like it’s just the will to win. All of us came here with one goal in mind and that’s to win, so especially in a game like today, championship game, my brother’s had my back,” Jones said. “Even at the start of the game I was struggling a little bit. They kept believing in me, coaches kept believing in me and kept telling me just keep going, keep taking my shot. So with them believing in me and trusting in me, those plays were able to be there and I was able to make them.” After a slow start from Barrett, the freshman phenom began to attack and ended up with 11 first-half points and 17 in the contest. Barrett complemented another stellar offensive showing from Williamson, who paced the team with 12 in the opening period and led the Blue Devil scoring game on the interior. Both teams showed sloppiness in the first half, combining for 15 turnovers. The teams took better care of the ball out of the locker room, as Duke won the turnover battle 13-12. Duke did manage to improve in an area that it has struggled See BASKETBALL on Page 20

Vice President Joe Biden met with Modrich and other Duke cancer researchers when he visited campus in February as part of his cancer moonshot initiative, which aims to accelerate the search towards a cure for cancer. Biden also held a roundtable discussion with scientists and physicians to discuss cancer research efforts. The University launched the Washington Duke Scholars program to provide firstgeneration students with enhanced financial aid packages and other resources. The incoming Class of 2020 included the first Washington Duke Scholars. In its second year, Duke Kunshan University began planning for long-term development— including the expansion of the undergraduate program—and saw the completion of five campus buildings, with work underway on a sixth. The football team ended the season on a high note under leadership from the senior class, despite ups and downs during ACC play. On Halloween night after seemingly securing a come-from-behind victory against Miami, the Blue Devils could not stop the Hurricanes’ controversial eight-lateral punt return, resulting in a 30-27 loss. However, the team was able to overturn its three-year streak of bowl game losses and 54-year drought by defeating Indiana at the New Era Pinstripe Bowl with a 44-41 overtime win in Yankee Stadium. The basketball team returned from a National Championship win with newly minted star Grayson Allen and a top-ranked recruiting class featuring Brandon Ingram. Despite high hopes, the Blue Devils lost captain Amile Jefferson for much of the season to a foot injury and fell out of the AP Top 25 poll for the first time since 2007.

Reince Priebus, former White House chief of staff to Trump, discussed the 2016 election and his service in Trump’s White House when he spoke on campus in December. Tom Perez, chair of the Democratic National Convention, talked about the evolution of the party when he visited in April, and Sen. Bernie Sanders and Rev. William Barber II packed the Chapel for their re-scheduled April talk on a moral economy. Nikki Haley, U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, visited campus in April to talk about Russian relations and the U.S. embassy in Israel. Condoleezza Rice, the former secretary of state, stopped by in May to discuss political risk. During alumni weekend in April, approximately 25 students took the stage as President Vincent Price stood at the podium. The students, affiliated under the People’s State of the University, presented a dozen demands for the University. The Office of Student Conduct originally sent notices to these students about possible disciplinary action but eventually chose to informally resolve the cases. The end of the year was also marked by racial incidents. A student was exposed on the Duke Memes for Gothicc Teens Facebook page for using a racial slur in a Snapchat. A student resident of the 300 Swift apartment complex had a racial epithet written across her door, and a pair of anti-Semitic posters were also found

along the East Campus wall and sidewalk. In May, it was reported that two baristas at Joe Van Gogh had been fired due to a rap song that was playing when Larry Moneta, vice president for student affairs, entered the store to buy a muffin. Internationally, Duke Kunshan University welcomed its first cohort of faculty for the undergraduate program in preparation for the inaugural undergraduate class arriving in the fall. Duke undergraduates elected junior Kristina Smith as their next Duke Student Government president to replace outgoing President Riyanka Ganguly, a senior, and chose senior Amy Kramer as their Young Trustee. The Class of 2018 lost a member of their class in December, when senior Alex McIlvaine died at age 22. McIlvaine was remembered in a memorial service at the Chapel in January.

SOPHOMORE FROM PAGE 10 with wins at Notre Dame and at home against North Carolina. Victories against the Tar Heels were a common theme of the year, with the Blue Devils taking two out of three from their rivals in men’s basketball and also topping them in men’s lacrosse, field hockey and twice in women’s basketball. After finishing both 2015 and 2016 without any ACC championships, Duke finally broke out of its slump this spring, winning the conference in men’s and women’s golf and men’s basketball. The Blue Devils’ triumph in Brooklyn was the highlight of the year with four wins in four days, but the preseason No. 1 team could not keep its momentum going in the NCAA tournament, bowing out against South Carolina in the second round.

SENIOR FROM PAGE 13 fellow top-10 recruit Tre Jones. The year got off to a strong start with a 34-point throttling of Kentucky in the Champions Classic. Arguably the year’s best win, however, came against Louisville when Duke came back from 23 points down with just over nine minutes remaining. The team’s fireworks extended beyond the court too—head coach Mike Krzyzewski lit the menorah on the Bryan Center plaza one night during the Jewish holiday of Hanukkah. After a trivia test determined who could tent, students camped out for weeks in Krzyzewskiville to see Williamson and the Blue Devils face off against North Carolina. Even former President Barack Obama attended the game. Unfortunately, Williamson broke through his shoe 30 seconds into the game and would not return in a game Duke ultimately lost to the Tar Heels. Duke got its revenge in the ACC tournament semifinals, and the team went on to win the tournament. Duke’s season ended in the Elite Eight against Michigan State when Kenny Goins hit a goahead three in the game’s waning seconds. Led by quarterback Daniel Jones, the football team finished the regular season with a 7-5 record. The season featured wins over North Carolina and Miami and blowout losses to Clemson and Wake Forest. The team capped off the year with a comeback win against Temple in the Walk-On’s Independence Bowl. The New York Giants then drafted Jones sixth overall in the NFL draft, making him the second Duke quarterback ever taken in the first round. Like Jones, this year was the last for Larry Moneta, vice president for student affairs. Duke named Tufts University administrator Mary Pat McMahon to succeed him as the new vice provost/vice president for campus life.

Walking around Duke’s campus, one couldn’t help but notice all the construction. The largest project was the brand-new dorm along Towerview Road, the Hollows. For the year’s student elections, undergraduate students chose junior Liv McKinney to be the next DSG president, replacing senior Kristina Smith. Senior Trey Walk was elected to serve as the undergraduate Young Trustee. This year also featured Duke “banning the box,” meaning applicants don’t have to disclose their criminal records when initially applying. Durham had its 150th birthday as well. Finally, this February marked the 50th anniversary of the Allen Building Takeover, when black student activists took over the administrative building and demanded change. The anniversary served as a reminder of how far Duke has come, and how much work is still left to do.

BASKETBALL FROM PAGE 18 mightily in throughout the season—at the charity stripe. The Blue Devils finished the contest with an 81.0 percent clip on free-throw attempts. Duke needed every point it could get at the stripe as the Seminoles could not miss, draining their first 13 attempts and finishing the contest 15-for-16. With the win, the Blue Devils earned the No. 1 overall seed in the NCAA tournament. Duke will be in the East Region and will begin tournament play Friday evening in Columbia, S.C., before potentially moving on to Washington. “This tournament’s been great, we’re ACC champions,” Williamson said. “I think that if we didn’t win it then the tournament wouldn’t have been great, so us winning this makes it great.

OFFICIALS FROM PAGE 17 Because of that link, the commissioner said, the denial’s impact stretches beyond transit initiatives. “The land use plan has focused on layering in housing and jobs at the transit stations. We now have a land use plan that is—to some degree, if we don’t move forward—up-ended, and we need to revisit all our assumptions about growth and development in the community,” she said. “This is more than just losing a transit project, because it affects a lot of other decision-making in the community.” Schoenfeld stressed that Duke’s relationship with Durham has lasted for more than a century and said that the University was “consistent in communicating its concerns” about the project for the last 20 years. “We know this is a very intense issue for a lot of people,” he said. “It is unfortunate that it has called into question the many significant and deeply rooted ways that Duke University contributes to Durham. We are always looking forward to how we can continue to enhance that engagement.” Two decades ago to the month, Duke’s administrators balked at rail plans for the Triangle too, according to a Chronicle article from February 1999. They specifically cited concerns about Erwin Road. “We don’t want anything that would disturb our patients or the neighborhood around the Hospital, and we believe that this is possible,” then-University spokesman Al Rossiter said. An internal memo from GoTriangle brought to light by the Durham Herald-Sun earlier this week raised questions about the timeline of Duke’s participation in talks. The University cited four specific issues in its Wednesday letter—vibrations from construction, electromagnetic interference from the train, continuous access to electric

power and liability for incidents that stem from any of those concerns. Congressman G.K. Butterfield issued a statement on the University’s decision, saying that he was “appalled” by the decision to prevent the project. “Duke’s decision not to sign the cooperative agreement with GoTriangle leaves the University as the determinative entity that will prevent a transformative transit project in a rapidly growing culturally diverse region from going forward... This decision really brings into question Duke’s commitment to be a true community partner. Duke has historically been good for Durham and, most certainly, Durham has been good for Duke,” Butterfield stated. “This relationship now appears to be fractured, which is very unfortunate.” The congressman encouraged local authorities to take the necessary steps to keep the train project on track. “I strongly urge all local officials and GoTriangle to use all options available to move this project forward,” he stated. “I call on Duke University to quickly reconsider its decision and to think very hard about how it wants to be viewed in the Durham community in the years to come.” Path forward One of the ideas recently floated publicly by Mark Anthony Middleton, member of Durham City Council, was to seize the University’s land needed for the project using eminent domain. Eminent domain entails a government or its agent expropriating private property for public use, with payment of compensation. How seriously that is being considered, however, is not completely clear. Mayor Steve Schewel told the Durham Herald Sun Thursday that GoTriangle was considering the option. “The GoTriangle board of directors is looking at all of its options, including eminent See OFFICIALS on Page 22

OFFICIALS FROM PAGE 20 domain, as I have informed President Price of Duke,” he told the Herald-Sun. However, Reckhow said that eminent domain was not currently a serious consideration. “It is not. We are looking at other approaches, we are talking to the [Federal Transit Authority] about options,” she said Thursday night. “Eminent domain we treat as a last resort, so it’s not being actively discussed at this point.” Other options include not seeking out a cooperative agreement from Duke if it is not giving land and minimizing contact with Duke generally, Reckhow explained. Schoenfeld declined to comment on whether eminent domain was under discussion. Another option could have been to modify the light rail’s route. The ability to drastically change the route ended, however, when the Environmental Impact Study was finalized in 2016. Although the University raised concerns at some points, Reckhow said that she thought those issues had been mitigated when a $90 million change was worked into the plan for the stretch of the rail on Erwin Road due to concerns from Duke. “This is a setback because the lack of a Duke property donation is a swing for us. We were counting on Duke’s support, because they were such a major partner and player all along the way in this project,” Reckhow said. “I’ll be honest, I view it as a breach of faith with the Durham community.”

CARR FROM PAGE 14 change emerged from various parts of the Duke community. The student protesters, who formed a group called People’s State of the University, held a rally at the building in support of the change. More than 140 alumni of the history department sent in a signed letter that encouraged renaming the building, and Duke Student Government unanimously passed a resolution calling for a name change. This is not the first time a building on Duke’s campus has been renamed after its namesake’s questionable past has come to light.

white supremacist movement—was renamed in 2014 to East Residence Hall, though the decision to rename Aycock was reached through a less formal process. The Board also supported the committee’s recommendation to create a display inside the Carr Building explaining “why the university chose to name the building in his honor in 1930, and why it chose to remove his name nearly ninety years later,” according to the Duke Today release. The committee’s report said that it received more than 900 responses to an online survey requesting input and heard from multiple members of Carr’s family. The educational installment is a key part of the recommendation, according to the report. “The unanimity of the committee’s support for the recommendation to remove the name is contingent on the creation of means to present educational and historical information on Julian Carr in order to preserve the record on Carr’s contributions to Trinity College and help the community understand his complex legacy,” the report stated. “We note that no individual is perfect, and we do not pretend to sit in judgment on any individual as a human or citizen,” the report said. “But the white supremacist actions that Carr pursued throughout his life, even when considered in light of the time in which they were held, are inconsistent with the fundamental aspirations of this university, and removing the name will be a powerful statement that lifts up our values as a diverse and inclusive institution.” Per the formalized process, the request was reviewed by an ad hoc committee Price formed in response to the request, which delivered a proposal to him. Price reviewed the proposal and delivered it to the Board of Trustees, which supported removing Carr’s name. Bovender said he appreciated the formalized process. “Julian Carr’s legacy is complicated. His leadership of and philanthropy to Trinity College helped ensure that the small liberal arts school would remain independent and would have the means—and the land—to transform into the great university it has become,” Price wrote in the email. “But this same person also actively promoted white supremacy through words and deeds that, even by the historic norms of the time, were extraordinarily divisive and caused serious harm to members of his community. It is for these reasons that I agree with the History Department, the committee members and the trustees that removal is the appropriate course of action.”

BORDERS FROM PAGE 3 engage with athletes. President Vincent Price praised Borders’ record with TIME’S UP and the Board of Trustees in a news release, explaining that these experiences would inform her speech to graduates. “Lisa also serves as a Duke trustee, and I have been honored to have her wise counsel over the past two years,” he said in the release. “I know that her lifetime of courageous, purposeful leadership will inspire our graduates as they set out on their own lives and careers.” For some Duke students, this won’t be the first time hearing Borders speak. Senior Anya Bali said in a news release that Borders spoke to the campus organization Business Oriented Women, and she was “funny, engaging and exciting to hear from.” “She really has lived a life of courage and a life that speaks to changes and achievement and a lot of things that I think will resonate with Duke graduates,” Bali said. Travis Dauwalter, president of the Graduate and Professional Student Council for the 2018-2019 academic year, also praised the choice in the release. “We are delighted that Lisa Borders was chosen as commencement speaker,” he said. “I’ve known her and met her only briefly as part of my work and her work on the Board of Trustees, and she’s a wonderful choice who will do a fantastic job.” This is the third consecutive year a Duke graduate and Trustee will be delivering the Commencement address, as Border follows Apple CEO Tim Cook, Fuqua ‘88, and David Rubenstein, former chair of the Board of Trustees and Trinity ‘70, as speaker. Nine Duke alumni have delivered addresses at the University’s Commencement ceremony since 1987, and Borders is slated to become the 10th Sunday. “I am thrilled about celebrating our graduates as well as welcoming these newly accomplished and soon to be ‘alums’ into our ‘Forever Duke’ fold,” Borders wrote in her email. “My remarks will celebrate the 2019 Graduates and offer some lessons to navigate the challenges in their life’s journey,” she wrote.
