Meet with one of the AAC Advising Directors

You can schedule a virtual appointment to meet with David Rabiner, Kelly Cottrell, or Jen Hoff if you have questions that require more time than a quick drop in meeting. We're available to be a sounding board and provide additional insight into your academic plans and goals, that can supplement conversations with your college advisor and other members of your advising network. You can schedule an appointment here.

Specialized Advising, including Global/ Civic, Arts & Humanities, and Social Sciences

Meet with a Director of Academic Engagement (DAE) who can help you make the most of your time at Duke. We encourage all students to meet with one or more of the DAEs early in their Duke career.
