DukeUniversity’s involvement began in Spring 2008 when they supplied UASCJ with two stellar interns who became immersed in our school culture for two months.  One of these interns returned to Duke to help design a half-credit pass/fail course, “The Life of Middle School Girls,” which launched in Spring 2009.  Students who took this course participated in an online mentoring program where they wrote one-on-one emails to UASCJ students each week.
