PhD TED-Talk Style Event

Every year, students and faculty from the PhD programs at Duke University School of Nursing and the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill College of Nursing gather for a collaboration dinner. As a way to enhance student engagement and speaking opportunities, this dinner now opens with a TED-Talk style event. Five students from each school are selected from a pool of abstract submissions to present a five-minute TED-Talk. This event is student-driven and each year has received wonderful feedback from both student presenters and attendees. Please view the links below, highlighting the 2017 TED-Style Talk presenters from Duke University School of Nursing.

Embracing Diversity For An Engaged Community

Embracing diversity is a crucial component for engaging with students, faculty, and the world. We think of it as diversity with a global perspective. Creating a learning climate where creativity, robust yet respectful debate, and a genuine respect for others can flourish. Fostering international research collaborations, developing global health initiatives, and coordinating access to health care for under-served populations. Educating next-generation nurses for leadership and service in the global community.

Diversity with a global perspective assures a warm welcome—not mere tolerance—for differences in national origin, race, color, religion, sex, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability, or veteran status.

We provide a safe haven where diversity can spawn intellectual engagement and collaborative partnerships.
