QuadEx Faculty Fellows are dynamic scholars and teachers with a passion for integrating the Duke academic experience with students’ social and residential lives.
A QuadEx Faculty Fellow is affiliated with (but does not reside in) each of Duke’s seven Quad communities. Through shared meals, conversations, and other special programming, Faculty Fellows partner with students to enhance intellectual life within the quad and to support intellectual growth and exploration beyond the classroom.
