We are excited to recognize Haley Toresdahl, Matthew Vining, and Joe Greenberg for the role as Master of Public Policy (MPP) students and graduate assistants in DuWell. In 2022, Haley and Matthew did outstanding work in conducting a thorough needs assessment of graduate and professional student programming and stressors around well-being. As a direct result of their efforts, the Well-being Collective group was formed, which will be an invaluable resource for staff that support student well-being across all graduate and professional programs. This collaborative effort aims to provide a supportive space for staff to share knowledge, coordinate programming, and improve student well-being. Joe joined as a GA this spring and will continue these efforts into the next academic year. We applaud all three students for their commitment and contribution to the grad/prof community.
The Student Focus feature is a part of the Graduate Professional Student Appreciation Week to highlight and thank the wonderful students and student groups that make our campus vibrant! Submissions were made by Duke staff members.
