Immigration Debate and Visas at Duke

Duke is deeply vested in the outcome of the immigration debate beginning this week in Congress. Not limited to our support for a positive outcome for DACA recipients, Duke is a global university committed to bringing outstanding students, researchers and teachers to our campus and the state of North Carolina where they make a difference each day and make significant contributions to our community and economy.

With students from over 115 different countries, Duke has more students on visas from more countries than the total countries represented at the current Winter Olympics. Duke has over 4,500 total individuals working, researching and studying thanks to various visa programs.


Whether from Indiana or India, South Carolina or South Africa, Duke is built on the belief that every member of our community deserves to have the same experiences and opportunities to learn and contribute, no matter where they are from.
