Greg Jones, former dean of the Divinity School who now serves as senior strategist for Leadership Education at Duke Divinity and professor of theology, has been named to the leadership team for Duke Innovation and Entrepreneurship (I&E) Initiative . He will serve as a senior strategist for education.
Duke I&E was created in 2010 to provide opportunities for students, faculty, alumni and the community in four areas: education, research, translation and social entrepreneurship. “Our goal is for Duke students to graduate with a strong base of knowledge, the ability to work in teams to identify solutions to intractable problems in a cross-disciplinary fashion, and a working understanding of the processes for bringing an idea into practice,” Jones said. “If we can accomplish that, we are well on our way to realizing President Brodhead’s vision of putting knowledge in the service of society.”
