Duke University : Global Education for Undergraduates

Duke University and the Global Education Office for Undergraduates celebrate sending 20,000 students worldwide!

Duke University and the Global Education Office for Undergraduates celebrate sending 20,000 students worldwide!

When we first realized that the Global Education Office for Undergraduates (GEO) was about to hit the 20,000 student mark, our thought was to honor the 20,000th student with prizes and confetti. We soon came to recognize that honoring one student in such a way would do little to reflect the depth and richness that such a milestone represents for Duke. Just imagine - 20,000 undergraduates studying across the globe over a span of decades, each with his or her own set of memories, photos, and years of reflections - how could we capture it all in a single celebration?

We decided to celebrate the milestone in two ways - a series of signature events aimed at the current Duke community, and a dynamic timeline that would highlight Duke's rich history of undergraduate educational exchange.

Below you will find a list of our 20K Students Worldwide signature events. Some events are time-tested, such as our annual Global Education Fair (formerly Study Abroad Fair), where we host representatives of over 150 study away opportunities for Duke undergraduates. This year we're adding a new flavor -- Locopops, anyone? -- and a new location at Scharf Hall and the Hall of Honor. Some events are new, like our movie night for students and families on Family Weekend. All events are designed with one goal in mind - to provide opportunities to explore new possibilities for global exchange, whether here on Duke's campus, in New York, New Delhi, or Cape Town.

Also below you'll find the centerpiece of our look back at history - a timeline of undergraduate global education highlights at Duke. History can be messy, but we've searched our archives for dates and photos, interviewed voices from the past, and we feel we have a good start on representing what has been an amazing 40+ years of global programming at Duke. To make our timeline even better, we encourage current students, alumni, former directors and host families, to lend their voices, photos, and memorabilia to the project. To contribute, please send photos, essays, video reflections, and inquiries to globaled@duke.edu.

The great thing about the timeline project is that it doesn't have to stop when the 20K celebration fades - each year Duke sends a new group of students (and hairstyles!) around the globe to learn and study beyond the Durham bubble and new memories are made. Whether your Duke journey ended long ago or you're still waiting for it to begin, we invite you to celebrate the 20,000 student milestone with us, and recognize your part in setting the stage for 20,000 more!
