We opened with one Director, a tremendous amount of energy, and a bright and welcoming space on the second floor of the Annex, in the same building as Financial Support and Student Loans. We stocked the fridge, built a listserv, and began to develop programming. We invited faculty members to informal lunches with small groups of 1G-HN, hosted trips to see shows at DPAC, held study breaks, and offered information on how financial aid could support summer and semester study abroad, research opportunities and internships, work study jobs, DukeEngage, and Bass Connections programs.
We have been able to expand our reach over the past few years to include information and programming for other students including independent students and DACA/undocumented students.
Programs currently offered through the Office include:
Duke belongs to each and every one of our students. We hope to continue to expand our offerings and promote our goal to help each student make the most of their own Duke experience.
