Alex Hoffman is one of two winners of the 2023 Terry Sanford Leadership Award.
A Public Policy major with minors in History and Spanish, Alex did not see himself as a leader, but he has shaken up the status quo in numerous ways on campus. For example, he is a founding member of Duke Sexual Harassment and Assault Prevention and Education (SHAPE), a student advocacy organization working to eradicate sexual violence on campus. He is also involved in an effort called the Transformative Systems Project to work with faculty and staff to modernize the economics curriculum at Sanford. After graduation, he will be researching social services provisioning in Berlin, as a 2023-2024 Fulbright grant recipient. Afterwards he will get an advanced degree at Oxford.
