Duke's international and area studies centers are housed in the John Hope Franklin Center on Duke's campus. These centers comprise a network of globally focused faculty members and staff who introduce and educate students and the Duke community to the cultures, customs, languages and histories of countries from around the world.
They do this through conferences, workshops, collaborative research, faculty and student exchange, travel grants, course development, curriculum development and by funding and organizing service learning projects.
