- Biographical / historical:
The Baldwin Scholars Program (BSP) at Duke University began during the 2004/2005 academic year. The Program aims to empower women to change Duke's campus culture and the world beyond. BSP is a four-year program for undergraduate women at Duke that gives students the opportunity to develop their critical thinking and problem solving skills, increase their personal awareness and growth, become connected to a strong and supportive network of peers and mentors, and work to realize their ambitions and dreams.
As Baldwin Scholars the students collectively take a first-year seminar and a senior capstone course, they live together on West Campus as sophomores, complete a career internship with a Duke alumna, and participate in numerous other activities and projects throughout the four years designed to enhance their leadership, critical thinking, and problem solving skills. The Program is named for Alice M. Baldwin, the first dean of Duke University's Woman's College.
