Welcome to the Week at Duke in 60 Seconds.

Duke senior Suhani Jalota is one of Glamour magazine’s top 10 College Women of the Year. Jalota’s start-up company, the Myna Mahila Foundation, empowers and employs women in India. 

A Duke team of students and faculty is using state-of-the-art eye-tracking to examine how the presence of faces influences our perception of art. The artworks they examined are now on display at the Nasher Museum. 

The Duke Interdisciplinary Social Innovators teamed up with Keep Durham Beautiful to help determine the non-profit’s impact on the city. Keep Durham Beautiful recruits about 2,000 volunteers a year to focus on litter prevention, waste reduction, and community greening.

Finally, the Duke University Chapel is scheduled to reopen Wednesday, May 11th. Prior to the reopening, an archives exhibit in Perkins Library documents how over the years the chapel has been at the center of campus life.
