Office of Global Affairs

The Office of Global Affairs is the locus of planning and coordination for Duke’s global activities. It works with the university’s senior leadership, schools and institutes to foster collaborative global efforts, advance internationalization on campus and generate awarenes of Duke's global activities within and beyond the Duke community.

The office coordinates and enhances:

  • Internal dialogue and planning for Duke’s global activities, including their impact on the Durham campus.
  • Communications with deans and senior officers of the university.
  • Relationship building with global partners, including universities and funding agencies.
  • Documentation and tracking of global activities across campus.

The office is advised by the faculty-led Global Priorities Committee
