Ambassador Dave & Kay Phillips Family International Lecture Series

AGS is proud to present the Ambassador Dave & Kay Phillips Family International Lecture Series.

The Ambassador Dave and Kay Phillips Family International Lecture Series was endowed for the purpose of bringing prominent figures in international security, foreign policy, and diplomacy to Duke University to engage with students, faculty, and the broader Duke community about issues of international importance.

The series is made possible thanks to the support and generosity of Ambassador Phillips, his wife Kay, and the entire Phillips family.
