“Our new century calls for a university audacious and visionary enough to fundamentally redefine learning and teaching in higher education. I believe Duke can and will be that university.”

- Vincent Price, President of Duke University

Advancing Excellence through Community Since 1838.

At the core of Duke's academic programs are our globally recognized faculty: researchers, scholars, artists, and innovators committed to inquiry and discovery. Ours is a community of faculty of true distinction, where distinction is understood to include both powerful intellectual creativity and the eagerness to stimulate and support the creativity of students inside and outside of the classroom.
