Appendix I: Faculty External to Duke & Possible Partnering Organizations Silicon Valley has long established itself as both a hub for technology and a center for education. Located at its heart, Stanford University has been enriched by the people who live and work in the area, the technologies that have been created there, the intellectual, social and cultural environments that have grown there, and the flow of fiscal resources that have flourished as a result of all of these inputs. The Research Triangle area has many of the same assets as Silicon Valley: a robust network of educators, professionals, entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, as well as a socially, economically, and culturally diverse general public and an established technologies and new media sector. Collectively, these assets offer a tremendous and robust support structure to the Master's program. The result is an extraordinary knowledge, experience and expertise base that has the potential to make this unlike any other program in North Carolina. We would take advantage of the many stunning human resources available to us due to our location. This appendix is the beginning of a list of the individuals upon whom we would call for help as teachers, mentors, providers of internships and jobs for our graduates. If you would like to be included on this list, or to recommend someone who you think would be a good fit for our program, please (contact us).
