Office of Student Returns

We are ready to welcome you back to Duke after your leave. The mission of the OSR is to guide students through the separation and return process and to make both points of transition as smooth as possible. The OSR works closely with Trinity Academic Deans and Pratt Academic Deans  as well as other campus partners including Duke Reach, Counseling and Psychological Services, the Student Disability and Access Office and other offices in order to streamline a student's successful transition. The foremost objective of the OSR is for students to experience a supportive, warm and care-centered separation and return process.
