As mentioned in a previous post, I will be running for Young Trustee. I am unveiling sections of my application to my loyal fans and readers. Below is my response to the third and fourth questions of Part I of the application. I hope all of you are enlightened by my answer.

3. Briefly describe the three most important initiatives you feel the Board of Trustees will face during your term. Given conditions of limited University resources, prioritize these projects and explain your prioritization in detail. (three pages maximum)

The Board’s foremost important initiative must be increasing literacy amongst the lemur populations at Duke Forest. It’s embarrassing that such a large research institution does nearly nothing about the devastating lack of education that pervades the Duke Forest. We need to invest resources into this project as soon as possible.

Secondly, we need to do something about orphans in Africa. Each dorm should be required do adopt one orphan. Students will be taught responsibility and orphans will be saved. We shall call this project, DukeOrphans.

Lastly, environmental concerns must be addressed in order to combat global warming. To reduce the use of electricity, we should enforce a mandatory tenting policy on all students and cut classroom time by 31 percent. Also, to prevent water shortages, we need to stop watering the grass, but also plant as many trees as possible to stop global warming.

4. What is the one issue that the Board of Trustees may not face during your term, but you feel is important to the future success of Duke University? Explain why this issue is important. (one page maximum)

In approximately 50 years, we will make contact with alien life forms. It’s important that we are prepared to handle this delicate situation when the time comes because all of humankind, including University faculty and students, may be enslaved or killed in the impending alien attack. To protect the University, we must build a large invisibility shield around the University and then harvest enough eggs and seamen to repopulate the planet.

My devotion to civic engagement makes me a strong candidate for Young Trustee.

1. What is your perception of the role of Young Trustee? (one page maximum)

The role of the Young Trustee is to provide the Board of Trustees with the opportunity to solicit student opinion on issues affecting the University. The Young Trustee must be in tune with student opinion, as well as all members of the University community, including, but not limited to:

1. The lemurs that inhabit Duke Forest

2. The campus cats and their progeny

3. The pack of wild dog-wolves that roam Central Campus
