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.

Have You Heard?

Plaza Entryway

A new glass entry element is being created at the Bryan Center’s plaza entry. The design will make the entry to the Bryan Center from the plaza more coherent with other recent and planned building projects in the BC neighborhood. The entry will be constructed of materials in harmony with neighboring buildings, and will make entering and exiting the BC and easier and pleasing experience through improved traffic flow.

The increased vertical scale of the new entry will provide greater visibility to aid navigation, and will blur the threshold between the natural exterior landscape and the built interior environment. Integrated lighting will crate a soft, inviting beacon during the night.

Students and other Bryan Center visitors can still enter the building from the Plaza level through the Bookstore, or through the entry along the Chapel side of the building, near the traffic circle.

The project is expected to be completed late spring 2015.
