Carter at Duke Idea
President Richard Brodhead shared a discussion on politics, education and foreign policy during a Duke Idea event in Atlanta.

Durham, NC - University President Richard Brodhead welcomed former U.S. President Jimmy Carter and his grandson, Jason Carter '97, to a "Duke Idea" event for alumni and friends in Atlanta last month. 

Brodhead hailed Carter as "not only a great President, but perhaps the greatest ex-president in modern American history." Carter talked about his presidency, his volunteer work for Habitat for Humanity and his experience monitoring elections around the world. 

Video of the event is available on the Duke on Demand website.

The next "Duke Idea" will take place March 20 in Charlotte, with Dr. Michael Kasten, executive director of the Duke Cancer Institute. The topic is "Meeting the Challenge of Cancer." The series is sponsored by the Duke Alumni Association.
