Duke Families,

Welcome to Duke! We are incredibly excited to have you be part of our Blue Devil family. Each year we are thrilled to welcome your students to the Duke community; their energy and passion inspire us. Much of our newsletter information will be shared on our social media platforms; however, we do encourage you to read each edition for additional insights, context, and official University response. Let us take a moment to acknowledge the unprecedented times before us.
