OUR STUDENTS
PEOPLE OF ACTION
Duke students don’t play it safe. As imaginative as they are ambitious, our students are community-minded and unafraid to confront difficult and complex issues head-on, challenge the status quo, and drive real-world change.
We look for students who operate at the intersection of imagination and impact—students who are unafraid to undertake things that are messy, complex, and outside of their comfort zone.
