Our mission is to enhance the academic experiences of undergraduates who are first-generation and from lower-income backgrounds. Our programming and initiatives provide students with holistic support to promote their full participation in the university’s intellectual communities. The office also fosters socioeconomic inclusion at Duke by coordinating resources and support strategies with campus partners to meet the needs of the 1G/LI community.
As a result of our work, 1G/LI students are well-positioned to:
Build meaningful relationships with faculty members
Successfully navigate Duke’s intellectual and social networks
Use campus resources that support their academic journey
