Oceans@Duke Student Club

The Oceans@Duke Student Club fosters collaboration among its interdisciplinary members to examine opportunities for professional development in oceans-related careers and areas of study. Our members tend to have a common fascination with all things “blue” whether it be fisheries management or offshore wind–or both! Here, students engage with Duke University’s leading experts in oceans’ science, governance and business.

Club members include students across graduate schools at Duke University: the Nicholas School of Environment, Fuqua School of Business, Pratt School of Engineering, Duke Medical School, Duke’s School of Law, Sanford School of Public Policy, and the Duke School of Medicine. The club is led by a student cabinet that plans and executes the Blue Economy Summit, the Future of Our Oceans webinar series, and other opportunities for “blue”-interested scholars to gather.
