Dear Duke families,

Duke Student Government (DSG) serves as the liaison between students and the Duke administration. To best fulfill our role, DSG partners with students and student groups to collaboratively raise concerns to the administration. Simultaneously, DSG aims to help the administration improve transparency and communication to the student body.

Our Student Senate is comprised of five committees: Academic Affairs, Campus Life, Durham and Regional Affairs, Equity and Outreach, and Services and Sustainability. Each of these groups aim to improve our university and the student experience, and go hand in hand with many of the goals identified in President Price’s strategic framework.
