Courtney Yribarren

Courtney Yribarren is a sophomore at Duke University who is studying topics like global development, ethics, and institutional justice through Duke’s Program II major. Growing up on a family farm in rural California and having run a district-wide campaign for better education, Courtney quickly began to care about how our institutions care for us – or don’t. With the Kenan Summer Fellowship, she’s investigating how the Ethics of Care are present in the individual and the organization, and how the ethics of care may be a sustainable framework for preventing burnout in this era. She cares deeply about care ethics, tap dancing, her loved ones, quality tea, and novels that warm the heart. Courtney hopes she can leave this world more caring than she found it.
