Nestled between rivers, mountains, and a rocky coastline—we’re all about beautiful contrasts.

We’re relentlessly innovative, but grounded in a history we’re constantly learning from. We’re thinkers who create, builders who dream, adventurers, and change agents happily rooted in our own personal arboretum.

We love technology and nature, abstract art and discrete mathematics. We believe in respect and inclusion, conversation, and collaboration, and we’re always interested in diverse perspectives.

So don't you want to be a Duck?

Roderick Hall

“I’m from a small town [Armour, North Carolina] and my town is predominately Black.

“Growing up I didn’t have things like a community center with all of these resources that would expose me to a wider world.

“I wanted to learn how to develop the resources to make a difference in these types of communities.”

—Roderick Hall, MCRP ’19 (Community and Regional Planning)

Kyra Marcela González

“I had the opportunity to be part of the Latinx Scholars Academic Residential Community my freshman year, and it gave me family. I’m an out-of-state student and being so far away from home was a difficult adjustment for me to make.

“The Latinx ARC gave me familiar faces that I would run into all over campus because of all of our different majors and interests. The ARC connected me with staff and faculty of color and emphasized the importance of having representation in your role models.”

—Kyra Marcela González, Class of 2022, Global Studies and Spanish major

A Place for Curiosity

Ducks dive into research to find answers to some of humanity’s biggest questions. We’re using big data to save and improve lives, striving to predict earthquakes and prevent deadly disease. We’re combining expertise across disciplines in math, biology, and genomics with bioengineering, neuroengineering, and precision medicine to fight cancer.

We’re re-defining research education with the Phil and Penny Knight Campus for Accelerating Scientific Impact, shaping the next generation of scientists, innovators, and entrepreneurs, ready to serve the state, nation, and world with discovery and impact.
