University President - Vincent E. Price

Dear Colleagues,

I am honored to join the entire Duke community in recognizing Veterans Day. We are grateful for the service of the many veterans among our students, staff, faculty, and alumni, and we are very proud to call them members of the Duke family.

Duke University has a long history of active engagement with the armed forces. From the famed 65th General Hospital, which was based at Duke and saved the lives of tens of thousands of soldiers in World War II, to our physician assistant program, which began with veteran students in the 1960's, to the thousands of undergraduate and graduate students who have left our campus to serve in every conflict dating back to World War I, we have been committed to supporting our servicemembers since the earliest days of this institution.

Applications due March 16. Apply now.

We are a student-run resource that provides the space for undergraduate students to reach out for support and referrals in times of struggle. Any Duke student can send an anonymous message to one of our Peer Responders about a struggle or challenge that they are currently facing. The approached Peer Responder will respond to the message within 24 hours.
