Riyanka Ganguly (Trinity ‘18) was elected Duke Student Government President after securing 53.3 percent of the student body vote earlier this month. In the Summer of 2016, Ganguly traveled to Gondor, Ethiopia to complete an independent DukeEngage project. Ganguly’s service focused on implementing sexual health curriculum for HIV youth clubs. Ganguly brought this passion for sexual health education back to Duke, leading a number of initiatives through DSG and founding the Peer Advocacy for Sexual Health (PASH) on campus. Her platform as President centers around advocating for marginalized groups at Duke, continuing the activist role she took on during her time in Ethiopia. We are thrilled that Ganguly has recognized her passion and taken action through both DukeEngage service and as a student leader on campus.
