Duke and North America

While many of Duke’s global activities take place in far-flung locations, an extraordinary amount of global learning and engagement takes place on the Duke campus in Durham, NC, in our local community, and in North America. The university’s global vision statement emphasizes the importance of global opportunities as a key component of what it means for Duke to be global. Domestic study away and civic engagement programs provide life-changing experiences for Duke students here in the United States, while the Council for Canadian Studies and Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies connect Duke students and scholars with our North American neighbors. Duke has 12,702 students currently enrolled from North America and 163,040 alumni residing in the region.
