A – Each dinner has a limited number of students who can attend. If you are selected for a dinner, you will be notified . Otherwise, we unfortunately did not have enough spots at that particular event for everyone to attend and your name was placed on the waitlist

Q – What is the selection process like for a dinner?
A – Duke Conversations believes that conversations are the most meaningful and engaging when participants of all years, areas of study, and personal identity are represented. Thus, in addition to ensuring that students who have not previously attended a conversation are able participate, the Duke Conversations Executive Team carefully reviews and selects students who are both different from each other and have demonstrated interest in the professor or topic.
