In an effort to provide enhanced access to the international student community to resources on campus, Student Affairs is utilizing technology to expand our global reach.

In 2009, with the support of Dr. Jo Rae Wright, former Dean of the Graduate School, colleagues from across the institution came together to create the first online orientation within New Student Programs' Summer Transition Series to facilitate a smoother transition to Duke and Durham for our incoming international graduate and professional students. These online sessions provided essential information in an interactive format for international students before they even set foot on campus.
