Help enhance the dining experience at Duke by joining the Duke University Student Dining Advisory Committee (DUSDAC). Committee members play a key role working closely with Dining Services to discuss everything from menu changes to new eateries.

The committee operates under the auspices of Duke Student Government to foster communication between students, administrators, staff, vendors, prospective vendors and customers. The group is dedicated to helping Duke provide delicious food, fair prices, great customer service and clean, well-organized facilities. With your feedback, DUSDAC helps to rate on-campus eateries and Merchants on Points vendors on customer service and food quality. Each year, we present awards to eateries that excel.

If you think your great taste – and taste buds – could contribute to our mission, contact the Duke Dining office at 919-660-3900 or email: diningnetwork@studentaffairs.duke.edu.
