Engaging Students

Student engagementIt’s a fact - Duke students who are the most excited about their studies and their professors give their undergraduate experience the highest ratings. We nurture an intellectual campus climate and encourage innovative teaching.   

  • Duke Immerse – four research-based, related seminars focusing on a single theme and taught in one semester – is supported by the Office of Undergraduate Education.

  • Spring Breakthrough is a new five-day program of short courses to expose first-year students and sophomores to interesting subjects in a high-impact, low-risk setting.  

  • The ProfTalks lecture series brings some of Duke's most prominent researchers to first-year residence halls for informal dinner lectures.
