Duke and East Asia

Duke University’s ties to East Asia date back to 1881 when Trinity College’s first international student, Charlie Soong, arrived from China. Soong eventually returned to become a leader in business and education in China. Today, the university’s activities in East Asia include multiple study abroad and civic engagement programs, extensive faculty research and service work, and partnership in a new joint venture university offering Duke programs. Duke has 1,667 students currently enrolled from this region and 2,639 alumni residing in East Asia.
