Get Connected!

There are no shortage of ways to connect with the Duquesne community.  As a graduate student, you will forge lasting personal and professional relationships with your faculty, staff members, classmates and alumni.  We hope this page will serve as a helpful resource for connecting with the Duquesne family, before, during and after your studies.

Connect with Your Program

Your program will be in regular communication with you prior to the start of classes.  Most programs will offer an orientation program, which is an excellent opportunity to meet your fellow classmates, as well as faculty and staff members.  If you would like to connect with members of your program prior to orientation, feel free to contact the program directly.  You can also feel free to contact our office and we will be happy to put you in touch with a program representative.

Additionally, you may like to learn about your faculty members prior to the start of your program.  We encourage you to visit our Faculty Directory, which will allow you to search by school and read about our professors' research areas and courses they teach.

Finally, we welcome you to visit campus.  We are happy to arrange a tour of campus as well as meetings with faculty, staff members or current students for your program.  You may also have the potential to sit-in on a class during your visit.  Our campus visit page will provide you with a contact for your program as well as a parking guide and campus map to help plan your visit.

If you are unable to visit with us during regular business hours, here is a Self-Guided Walking Tour booklet.
