The sessions from the 2010 Convocation & Pastors’ School are among the most widely downloaded audio recordings from across all of Duke University. As one alumnus reflected in a post-event evaluation: “The speakers really addressed a very wide spectrum of listeners. I am non-denominational and semi-evangelical and felt totally welcomed.”
