Since its inception, Duke University has been evolving. From Trinity College to the global research institution that it is today, Duke has never failed to reinvent itself. A product of the student bodies that form it, the demographics of Duke’s student bodies yield deep insight into how the University has morphed into what it is today. On this site, we take 50 years of enrollment data and transform it into meaningful, interesting, and useful visualizations–as well as give the curious the capacity to dive into the data themselves.

To access our application and explore visualizations yourself, feel free to go ahead and navigate to the ‘Launch the Application’ tab, where you’ll be automatically redirected to our application. If you’d like a primer before diving in, we have a ‘How to Use’ tab as well, walking you through the functionalities of our site.
