Responding to the Disaster in Haiti
Time and again, the Duke community has shown a generous spirit and true concern for others in need. Now we ask you to consider supporting the people of Haiti as they rebuild their country following the earthquake that devastated their country on Jan. 12, and to look for ways in which Duke can make a difference in the lives of people who have lost so much.
On this site, you will find updates and learn of resources to help members of the Duke community support the Haiti relief efforts.
