The Division of Student Affairs is critically engaged in all aspects of students’ lives and collaborates with students, faculty, staff, alumni, parents, and many others in the delivery of key services and support to students and all whom the Division serves.
Student Affairs provides programs and services that support the optimal growth of Duke students, enhance their intellectual, social, cultural and physical development, and complement Duke’s academic excellence by providing opportunities for students to experience education and explore interests beyond the classroom.
Our programs address the whole of student life--intellectual, social, cultural, and physical--to provide the tools and knowledge necessary to succeed at Duke, and in life. We provide opportunities to lead, to engage diverse perspectives, to become good citizens, to embrace healthy lifestyles, to envision meaningful career paths, and much more.

Partnering with Duke Police to Enhance Campus Safety
Along with educational opportunities like the Citizens’ Police Academy, programs include a biannual “Tips n’ Treats,” where officers host meet-and-greet sessions on East, Central and West campus. There's Q&A sessions like “Coffee with a Cop,” part of a nationwide program to increase engagement. Duke Police officers also provide free electronic engraving services to help deter personal property theft and partner with Facilities Management to trim brush across campus for greater visibility.
The department also recently launched text messaging as a way to communicate with police in non-life threatening situations.
“Campus police are here to support students, faculty and staff and work towards Duke’s mission,” said John Dailey, chief of Duke Police. “It’s pivotal for us to build strong relationships with everyone in the community to understand their needs and to work together to enhance a safe environment.”
