As we turn our attention to the future, our community must answer two interconnected questions: what do we want Duke to look like ten years from now, or a hundred years from now? And what steps will we need to take to get there?

President Price has developed a strategic framework that seeks to answer these questions, focused on five core areas: empowering people, transforming education, building community, forging partnerships and engaging our network.

About President Price

Vincent Price is the 10th President of Duke University, where he is also Walter Hines Page Professor of Public Policy and Political Science in the Sanford School of Public Policy and Trinity College of Arts and Sciences.

A leading global expert on public opinion, social influence, and political communication, President Price came to Duke in 2017. Since arriving on campus, he has turned his attention to the future of the university, developing a strategic framework focused on five core principles: empowering people, transforming education, building community, forging partnerships, and engaging a global network. President Price has also overseen a series of major reform efforts at Duke, including initiatives to study the legacy of the university’s history, support the continued development of Duke arts and culture, update university facilities for the next generation of students and faculty, and reorganize the governance structure of the Board of Trustees.
