If you are accepted to a dinner but are unable to attend, you must give notice at least 1 DAY IN ADVANCE to the Duke Conversations executive member responsible for your dinner notice. Otherwise, you will be prohibited from attending any Duke Conversations event for the remainder of the semester.

Free transportation to the dinner will depart the Science Center Circle no more than 5 minutes after the arrival time listed in your acceptance email. If you are late, you will be responsible for your own transportation.

Participating in a Duke Conversations event is a privilege afforded to Duke students by the generosity of Duke professors and by the Office of Undergraduate Education. Participants must be respectful not only to the professors, but also to each other and each other’s perspectives.
