This is Duke
Duke's Entrepreneurial Spirit

Launched in 2010, the university’s campus-wide Innovation and Entrepreneurship Initiative seeks to make Duke an agent of transformation.

The Duke Philosophy: Access and Flexibility.
We guide our students to find their own academic paths by helping them to reason, analyze and understand in unprecedented ways. The undergraduate experience at Duke is characterized by a spirit of academic energy, exploration and challenge.
We are a research university with resources to connect undergraduate education to the processes of inquiry and discovery. Duke students explore ideas by collaborating directly with our exceptional faculty in a program of study that focuses on interdisciplinary exploration.
A student's education doesn't end at the classroom door. We provide an incredible variety of opportunities for students to enhance and supplement in-class learning with hands-on experiences, service in the community—both locally and globally—and development of leadership skills.

"Duke is a place of amazing abundance."
This is President Brodhead.
Here's what he has to say.
To turn Duke opportunities into your personal strengths, you have to want them, reach out to them, and actively incorporate them into your life. It’s your choice, but it matters what you do.
A great university is a scene of constant combustion, where energies of intelligence and creativity are released in a bonfire no marshal could hope to contain.
Like the Olympics, Duke is a community dedicated to the highest realization of human powers.
