Founded in 1924, Duke University is a private institution located on a 9,000 acre campus in Durham, North Carolina. Enrollment includes more than 6,400 undergraduate and 8,300 graduate students. Diversity, equity and inclusion are priorities, and approximately 50 percent of the students are from diverse ethnic and racial backgrounds.
With twelve schools and seven signature institutes, Duke trains students in areas of law, medicine, public policy, environmental and earth sciences, business, engineering, global health and divinity. Trinity College of Arts and Sciences awards nearly 80 percent of Duke’s undergraduate and 40 percent of graduate degrees in disciplines that cross arts, humanities and natural and social sciences. Continuing studies programs through Trinity College offer youth programming, professional certificates, management training, lifelong learning, events and online courses. The university is renowned for its research initiatives and routinely ranks in the top tier of U.S. universities for research expenditures.
Our work with Duke University ranges from supporting plant biology bench research to measuring and documenting the incidental catch rates of seabirds, sea turtles and marine mammals by U.S. and international fisheries.
