Good Reason


Speaker(s): Keynotes—Van Jones, Vivek Murthy, and Tonya Robinson ’92

Register for Good Reason keynotes Jan. 14-15

“Good Reason” is a two-day virtual immersion Jan. 14-15 where artists, activists, academics, students, and practitioners from a range of policy fields re-imagine how public policy can build a better world. Inspiring keynotes, panel discussions, and team-based problem-solving exercises with alumni will facilitate a meeting between the messiness of the real world and the tidiness of classroom work. The experience will help you find your own good reason for doing good work. "Good Reason" will take place on January 14th (9:30am-8pm) and January 15th (tentatively 9:30am - 3:30pm).  

  • Keynote Plenary Sessions: Van Jones, Vivek Murthy, Tonya Robinson ‘92 (keynotes are open to the public)
  • Entire Good Reason workshop with panels, workshops and keynotes (open to Duke undergraduate students only)
