Appreciation Week

appreciation week

The Graduate School organizes a week of activities each spring to acknowledge the invaluable contributions that graduate students make to Duke. The activities aim to show our appreciation by giving students access to tools for professional and personal development and opportunities to socialize and network. The festivities are part of the student appreciation week sponsored by the National Association of Graduate-Professional Students.

Due to the university's guidance on social distancing in light of the novel coronavirus, all in-person events are canceled. Where possible, they have been replaced by virtual gatherings via Zoom.
