Founded in 1924, Duke University is private, research institution in Durham, NC. Younger than most other prestigious U.S. research universities, Duke University consistently ranks among the very best. Duke’s graduate and professional schools — in business, divinity, engineering, the environment, law, medicine, nursing and public policy — are among the leaders in their fields. Duke’s home campus is situated on nearly 9,000 acres in Durham, N.C, a city of more than 200,000 people. Duke also is active internationally through the Duke-NUS Graduate Medical School in Singapore, Duke Kunshan University in China and numerous research and education programs across the globe. More than 75 percent of Duke students pursue service-learning opportunities in Durham and around the world through DukeEngage and other programs that advance the university’s mission of “knowledge in service to society.” Home of the Blue Devils, Duke University has more than 15,000 undergraduate and graduate students and a world-class faculty helping to expand the frontiers of knowledge.

As Duke University enters its second century, President Vincent Price has directed the University to marshal its collective resources and capabilities to address the climate crisis. Stemming from President Price’s call to action, the Duke Climate Commitment aims to build on Duke’s long-standing work to proactively create impactful, just, and durable climate and sustainability solutions that place society on the path toward a resilient, flourishing world with mitigated climate risks. To accomplish this major undertaking, the Commitment weaves climate and sustainability through every aspect of the University’s core missions of education, research, sustainable operations, community partnerships, and external engagement.
