The Chemistry Department at Duke University engages in multiple recruitment activities each year. Faculty and current graduate students typically travel to various universities, institutions, and conferences each year to promote our inter-disciplinary doctoral program both to peers and to potential applicants. The Graduate Studies Office engages in nationwide recruitment efforts by attending diversity forums and graduate fairs across the country. Due to COVID 19 restrictions, these recruitment activities have been limited in the past 18 months.
Each Spring the Chemistry Department typically invites selected individuals offered admission to the doctoral program to visit Duke University and the department. In SPRING 2022 the Department anticipates holding two graduate recruitment events for admitted students including one in late January/early February that will be virtual, and one in late March/early April that will be in-person, pending COVID19 restrictions. More information about the programing and scheduling of theses virtual and in-person visits for admitted students will be forthcoming.
