The Duke-UNC Rotary Peace Center was the first center to create a governing board to help oversee the operations of the program. The quarterly board meetings and annual retreats have been instrumental in the ongoing success of the Center and the development of the Fellows.

In addition to these members, each cohort elects a student representative. The student representatives meet with the board twice a year to share the perspective of their cohort of Rotary Peace Fellows.

The Board is comprised of the following members:


Jonathan Abels

Executive Director, Duke Center for International Development


Catherine Adcock Admay, JD

Faculty Director, Duke University


Carol Allen

Cary MacGregor Rotary Club, PDG District 7710


Susan Carroll
