Duke has been committed to building a culture of sustainability for decades. Efforts to reduce the university’s environmental impact include strategic planning, community education regarding sustainability on campus and the development of programs to positively influence campus sustainability behavior and operations.
Two by two, Duke employee volunteers are traversing campus to encourage mask wearing and physical distancing. The group of employees, known as the C-Team, work in four-hour shifts during the morning, evening and night to remind students, employees and visitors to wear masks and practice physical distancing.

As a crowd filed into the Pinhook that night, Scott Lindroth stood outside, attempting to synthesize what he was seeing.
