Bass Connections brings together Duke faculty and students to explore real-world issues in interdisciplinary research teams.


Data+ is a summer research experience for undergraduates interested in exploring data-driven approaches to interdisciplinary challenges. We invite proposals for faculty-sponsored Data+ projects in Summer 2019.

From the moment first-years set foot on campus, they’re inundated with information about all of the opportunities Duke has to offer. So how should students choose what to do? A Data+ team explored this question and developed an "e-advisor" app to recommend programs to students based on their backgrounds and interests.

Graduate and upper-level undergraduate students can apply for a Fall 2018 course that examines the negotiation of international climate change agreements under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change.
