Duke’s enrollment data over the past 50 years speaks volumes about the evolution of the University. Using physical scans courtesy of the Duke University Archives, we manipulate decades of demographic and geospatial data across all Duke schools to create an interactive application. Giving users control over how they want to dive into the data, we hope to both illuminate questions and inspire further research into the composition of Duke’s student body–highlighting the history, origins, and people that have helped make it what it is today.
