Clubs & Organizations

     

    Introduction

    Student clubs and organizations are an exciting and important part of the Duke Kunshan University experience, not only to serve the diverse needs and interests of our students, connect everybody outside their classrooms, but also to provide leadership skills development and opportunities, as well as to empower students culturally, socially, and intellectually. DKU has over 60+ student clubs and organizations that are funded and supported by the Office of Student Affairs. All were started by and now are run completely by students abiding by the student clubs and University policies.

    Becoming an official club/organization on campus is only one step away. Contact Campus Engagement as part of the Office of Student Affairs to find out more clubs@dukekunshan.edu.cn.


    Involvement Expo

    On the first Friday of each semester, the Involvement Expo occurs in the Academic Building were all clubs and organizations are able to showcase what each of them offer for social fun aspects, activities and leadership, aiming to recruit new members to join. This is a great way to kick off the semester and get involved with fellow classmates who shared similar interests and build long-life friendships. For more information on this program and many club activities, please see visit DKU Engage at https://dukekunshan.campuslabs.com/engage/.


    Meetings, Trainings and Workshops

    All clubs offer leadership opportunities for students to expand their ability of being stronger leaders at DKU. To assist in club leadership development, the Office of Student Affairs offers officers and their advisors required trainings and workshops to attend in which the club policies and regulations are explained and reviewed plus individual optional ones on soft skills.
