The Office of Student Life at Duke Divinity School is dedicated to fostering a vibrant and inclusive student community that supports all residential and hybrid students as they grow into their calling to serve the church, the academy, and the world. The office coordinates a variety of events and programs, including student-led panels, guest speakers, community meals, sports events, workshops, brown-bag discussions, and community learning and service. In addition, the office enhances the educational environment through cultivating student leadership and mentoring students.

The Office of Student Life provides support to a wide range of student groups from small interest groups to the Divinity Student Council and its more than 15 official affiliate groups.

The office also provides a hospitable space for students to unwind; speak freely; discuss academic, spiritual, and personal concerns; and explore possibilities for future vocation and ministry.
