Courtney M. Duncan

Courtney is a senior manager for the UNCF STEM team. Her focus is on building curriculum and critical educational assets for the STEM team’s existing and developing initiatives. Prior to joining the STEM team, Courtney worked on the UNCF-Merck biopharmaceutical summer program on the Student and Professional Development Programs team.

Courtney attended Barnard College at Columbia University, where she received her B.A. in Psychology. She then obtained her M.A. in General Psychology at The New School for Social Research, and is currently working on her dissertation in Curriculum and Instruction at George Washington University.

Courtney’s research is a study of the on-boarding process (called induction) for public school elementary teachers. Her dissertation takes up much of her free time, but when she can, she enjoys paddleboarding, hanging with her dog, and binging Netflix series.
