More than 50 percent of Duke undergraduates have a significant international experience during their time at Duke. The Global Education Office for Undergraduates (GEO-U) offers more than 40 Duke-administered international programs in addition to advising and facilitating the enrollment and credit transfer for over 75 non-Duke options. As of summer 2015, DukeEngage has provided more than 3,200 undergraduates with opportunities for immersive service learning in nearly 70 nations on six continents.
Created in 2011, the Academic Advising Center’s global advising program advances undergraduate students’ global awareness and citizenship through one-on-one advising and mentoring. This team of advisors helps students imagine and plot their global and civic engagement at Duke as a four-year journey in which curricular, co-curricular and away-from-Duke experiences complement one another in enhancing students’ capacities to reflect and engage in global learning.
