9 ElementsCurrent statusAspects requiring development Resources required Curricular Programs Undergrad E&E certificate. Undergrad Energy Eng. 2 nd major under dev. MEM, MBA E&E conc. MPP E&E conc. under dev. PhD programs, incl. Env. Policy Alter or combine any existing programs for connectivity/efficiency? Create a set of shared core courses under a common designation? If so, which ones and who is responsible? Initial development effort. Faculty & administrative oversight & staff to coordinate schedules, maintain documents, etc. Gateway Experiences & Courses Intro. to E&E course. Energy Fundamentals Workshop. Field trips. Several programs have similar needs for core courses. New gateway course(s)? Make Energy Fundamentals a course or develop other short courses? FOCUS? Study abroad? Where to expand offerings? Agreements about accessibility? Initial development effort. Faculty/TA/contract teaching time. Faculty & administrative oversight & staff. Energy IDEAS Project Teams Several current approaches (capstones, MPs, senior theses) although not necessarily integrated or accessible due to enrollment restrictions, ceilings, prereqs, etc. Integration of joint projects among undergrad/grad/faculty and with research. Group MPs? Client-based projects? Prerequisites? Faculty/TA/contract teaching time. Faculty & administrative oversight & staff. Energy Fellows Program Unofficially launched with Rep. Bob Inglis (NSOE). Diplomats in Residence (Sanford). Pratt NAE Grand Challenge Scholars. SmartHome Fellows. One generic Fellows program or an umbrella with sub-programs? (eg, Visiting, Faculty, Post-Doc, Graduate, Undergrad Fellows) Recruitment process? Mentoring? International exchange? Initial development effort. Salary, stipends, fellowships, travel, living support. Faculty and administrative oversight and staff. Communications. Space/facilities. Energy Engagement Website, Speaker Series, and lunch series launched. Duke Startup Challenge- Clean Energy Track launched. Conference events supported. Internal/public conferences/workshops.

14 Brain and Society

15 Brain and Society is a transdisciplinary, team-based learning experience that requires collaborative discovery across traditional academic disciplines. Brain and Society will engage undergraduates, graduate students, post-doctoral fellows, medical students, medical residents, medical fellows, professional students, and faculty from different programs, majors, and professional schools, including but not exclusive to Neuroscience, in an immersive curriculum that combines research and coursework into a common program of scholarship and that integrates students into multidisciplinary project based teams. Students will enter Brain and Society via any of a set of gateway courses taken in the sophomore or junior years. These courses will initiate a multi-semester sequence in which small teams of students (3-5 individuals, from Neuroscience, Public Policy Studies, Philosophy, Sociology, Economics, Womens Studies, Visual and Media Studies, and other majors) work as part of a vertically integrated team, take a shared second course related to the research topic, select non-coursework training appropriate to the project, and then participate in a final theme capstone. Research teams will be charged with building connections between basic research in neuroscience (and related biological sciences) and societal challenges in Medicine, Public Policy, Economics, Ethics, and Law. Example research questions could include understanding physical and social responses to transformative events (e.g., post-traumatic stress disorder following disaster), exploring methods for shaping public policies (e.g., increasing contributions to public goods), and understanding how decision processes shape our institutions (e.g., integrating new science into legal procedures). As a new liberal art of the 21st century, neuroscience can become a lingua franca that allows students from diverse backgrounds to communicate across traditional disciplines, bringing their individual education to bear jointly on a social problem.
