Short-term programs allow Duke students and faculty to experience the DKU campus, to connect with its resources, and to explore Kunshan, Suzhou and the greater Jiangsu and Shanghai regions while pursuing activities of interest.

Future short-term programs or conferences, such as the examples highlighted below, will be facilitated by DODR. Check back here for updated information and available opportunities.

Led by Professor Tom Rankin, Professor of the Practice of Art and Documentary Studies in collaboration with Kaley Clements, Global Fellow in the Arts and Humanities at DKU and Seth Henderson, Assistant Professor of Media and Arts at DKU, the documentary arts at DKU program allowed ten Duke students to get to know DKU’s inaugural undergraduate class and to create documentary material about their experience.

In 2019, six Duke students were invited to present research papers along with DKU peers at DKU’s first undergraduate research conference, organized by DKU’s Humanities Research Center.

Students enrolled in International Applications of Environmental Field Studies at Duke conducted field research at DKU. Led by Pratt School Professor Mike Bergin, undergraduate students examined air and water quality at DKU and in the region.

Led by Duke University Center Activities & Events (UCAT) and duARTS, Duke students from various artistic backgrounds traveled to DKU to engage along with DKU students in producing art and to tell the story of their experiences through the arts.

In Durham, Duke students can engage with DKU students everywhere on campus – in the classroom, in the dorms, at events and conferences, through student group activities, and in any other way that you interact with Duke students. To play an active role in shaping Duke-DKU student programming and events, or to support visiting DKU students, consider joining a DKU-related student group.
