Duke Academic Strategic Plan

Together Duke: Advancing Excellence through Community establishes our intellectual and community priorities for the coming decade.

Our vision for the next decade is “to grow, connect, and empower diverse and inclusive communities of excellence to enhance the creation, delivery, and translation of knowledge for a rapidly changing world.”

Together Duke is a roadmap, not a contract; it is flexible and provides a framework that can accommodate new ideas and respond to change.

“Duke’s most enduring successes, and most exhilarating innovations, have come from the ideas conceived, nurtured, and implemented by our community. Together Duke captures these ideas for our time.”

Sally Kornbluth, Provost
