Duke Press Release: Anne Yoder Named Duke Primate Center Director

A quote from Yoder:

“When I was an undergraduate at UNC, I’d always been interested in biology and in animals, but I was rather undirected and not a particularly high-performing student. But when I took a class trip to the Primate Center, it just literally blew my mind! It changed everything. I suddenly had a focus in my studies. I started doing behavioral studies at the center. My grades went up, and it set the tone for the rest of my career.”

And if that isn’t a statement about the potential for education to be transformative, I don’t know what is.

Here’s a link to the Duke Primate Center‘s site. They do tours. I totally have to do that.
