Strategic Priorities

In order to address the grand challenges of policy, Sanford will strengthen our work in four strategic areas for maximum impact:

Our Strategy

Our strategy is to invest in the areas of our work that build upon our existing strengths, align with Dukeโ€™s mission and create the most opportunities for social impact. Our priorities are meaningful because they are rooted in our community and our legacy. They align with the DUKE WILL priorities to empower the boldest thinkers, transform teaching and discovery, build a renewed campus community, forge purposeful partnerships and engage our networks.

Our strategy also requires us to actively cultivate Sanford as a learning organization, a hub for experimentation and inquiry. We will set goals and action items, but also retain the ability to take advantage of opportunities that may arise. That is our approach to accomplish the work ahead.
