Greetings Duke Families!
My name is Jordan Hale, and I am honored to serve as Director of New Student and Family Programs for Duke University. As I step into this role, I have a lot of people to thank. I want to start by thanking Clay Adams who has been promoted to Vice Dean of Students. Do not worry, Clay has not gone far (he still oversees our entire unit), and I am grateful he entrusts our team to serve new students and all our families. I’d also like to thank our amazing team, Grace Sullivan Zirkle and Carina Carpenter, for their work. Since this summer, Grace and Carina have stepped into their roles and done incredible work to welcome students and families to Duke. Finally, as always, I have to thank members of the DPAC, specifically or emeritus parents Dana Dudley, Penny Fleming, and Beth Gabay. Thank you all for the insight and trust to work on this amazing team.
