The Duke Innovation and Entrepreneurship Initiative
Duke I & E
The Duke Innovation and Entrepreneurship Initiative brings to life and deepens Duke’s enduring theme of knowledge in the service of society. We seek to make Duke an agent of transformation through an entrepreneurial spirit, generating innovations from the ideas that grow at the university and translating those innovations to positively impact individuals, communities, institutions, and societies. We seek to inspire and prepare all members of the university community for innovative leadership and to actively support and encourage the translation of knowledge in the service of society.
Social Science Research Institute
Duke - SSRI
Social Science Research Institute (SSRI) brings together researchers with interests in problems that cross the various social and behavioral sciences, including problems that connect with the humanities and natural sciences. We promote multidisciplinary collaboration among such scholars as they work on important social issues that are challenging to address fully from within any given discipline.
Duke - Innovation Co-Lab
The Innovation Co-Lab is a creativity incubator, focused on exploring how new and emerging technologies can fundamentally reshape the research, academic, and service missions of the university. Working with our innovation-minded colleagues around campus, we're building a model program that will elevate and inspire Duke students who are solving problems, big and small, through our ever-changing technological environment. Duke students of all backgrounds, interests, and skill-sets are encouraged to participate.
Duke University Libraries
Duke University Libraries
The Duke University Libraries are the shared center of the university's intellectual life.
The William R. Perkins Library, Bostock Library and Rubenstein Rare Book & Manuscript Library comprise the main West Campus library complex, which is joined by Lilly and Music libraries on East Campus, the Pearse Memorial Library at the Duke Marine Lab and the separately administered libraries serving the schools of Business, Divinity, Law and Medicine. Together they form one of the nation's top ten private university library systems.
Duke - Center for Instructional Technology (CIT)
The Duke Center for Instructional Technology (CIT) contributes to Duke’s academic excellence by helping instructors explore and evaluate innovative ways to use technology and new pedagogies to meet their teaching goals. We do this in several ways, including:
- consulting with instructors to discuss and plan new teaching, learning and technology projects
- fostering communication and collaboration among instructors through programs like our Faculty Fellows
- providing funding and support to instructors who want to explore new teaching approaches or technologies
- experimenting with, and evaluating, new teaching technologies and teaching/learning approaches
- shaping and curating Duke’s learning technology ecosystem
- sharing our knowledge with the Duke community and beyond
