About Us

Duke Today is produced jointly by three Duke offices:

  • The Office of News and Communications (ONC), the main campus news office
  • The Office of Communications Services (OCS), which serves as the central office for employee communications, supporting Duke's administrative divisions
  • The Office of Undergraduate Education (OUE), which connects the academic, co-curricular, residential and social facets of Duke student life

Geoffrey Mock of ONC is the editor of the 'News' edition.
Keith Lawrence of ONC is the editor of the 'Opinion' edition.
Leanora Minai of OCS is the editor of the 'Working@Duke' edition.
Susan Kauffman of OUE is the editor of the "Students' edition. Cord Peters '16 and Carolyn Heiman '14 are the DTS student editors.

The university launched the latest version of Duke Today in April 2011, in collaboration with Duke Web Services. This version included two sections: News and Working@Duke. Duke Today added its Opinion section in September 2011 to showcase faculty expertise and commentary on issues facing society. It added its Student section in May 2012 to provide students with a central source of online information.
