The Nicholas School of the Environment and Duke Houston invite you to gather with alumni and friends for a presentation by Stanback Dean of the Nicholas School, Toddi Steelman Ph.D.'96. She will outline why protecting the environment requires relentless optimism even in the face of warming oceans, wildfire threats, increased energy demands, food security risks and many more challenges. Now in her second year as dean, Steelman is inspired by how Duke alumni, faculty and students are working smarter and faster in finding and applying solutions to these demanding issues.
