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 to virtual events.
Each Spring the Chemistry Department typically invites selected individuals offered admission to the doctoral program to visit Duke University and the department. Due to anticipated COVID 19 restrictions in SPRING 2021, these Departmental visits will most likely be hosted virtually. Similar to past years we are planning for these virtual visits to include a Department-wide Graduate Recruitment Weekend. More information about the programing and scheduling of these virtual visits will be forthcoming later in the Fall.
