School Description

Duke University was established in 1924 by James Buchanan Duke as a memorial to his father, Washington Duke. The University’s roots however, go as far back as 1838, when local Methodist and Quaker communities opened the Union Institute. The school was re-named Trinity College in 1892 when it moved to Durham. During this time Benjamin Newton Duke served as a primary benefactor and in December 1924, Benjamin’s brother, James B. Duke, created the family philanthropic foundation, The Duke Endowment, which provided for the expansion of Trinity College into Duke University; subsequent to this Trinity underwent both a physical and academic expansion. Hence, the small college developed into a complex university.

The School of Religion and Graduate School opened in 1926, the Medical School and hospital in 1930, the School of Nursing in 1931 and the School of Forestry in 1938. In 1930, the original Durham site became the coordinate Woman’s College, which was merged back into Trinity as the liberal arts college for both men and women in 1972. The new West campus became home to Trinity College for men, along with the hospital and the graduate and professional schools. The Law School, founded in 1904, was reorganized in 1930. Engineering, which had been taught since 1903, became a separate school in 1939. The last of James B. Duke's stated desires for the university was fulfilled when the School of Business Administration, now the Fuqua School of Business, opened in 1969.

Duke is committed to a need-blind admission policy; about 50 percent of all Duke students receive some form of financial aid, which includes need-based aid, athletic aid and merit aid. The University has a very robust athletics program Duke Athletics, which is part of the Atlantic Coast Conference; fields teams in 26 NCAA Division I varsity sports. The University’s athletics team, called the Blue Devils have won national championships in men’s basketball, lacrosse and soccer, and women’s golf and tennis.
