MEM Student Club Resources

Hosting an Event

Since we have MEMers living in Durham and studying around the world, it is advisable for clubs to host a combination of in-person and online events. As leaders of your club, think about what events translate best virtually and what are delivered better in-person. Duke expects you to hold a combination of events in order to best serve students in your program.

    • Online – Zoom platform is best but important to think about timezones and when people can attend.
    • In-person – Most club events can be held in-person for Spring 2022 semester.  Approval and permit will be required for events over 100 attendees.
