DU Daily

Duquesne University's Spirit crowdfunding platform has a number of active campaigns that need your support!

  • Nursing in Nicaragua - www.spirit.duq.edu/nin18: A School of Nursing tradition since 1995, this is an effort where our Nursing students travel to Nicaragua during their Spring Break to make a difference in the lives of the Nicaraguan people. Donations help to offset the costs for our students to attend and to also provide the necessary supplies they need to serve the people of Nicaragua. (ends March 16)
  • Duquesne Asset Management Group - www.spirit.duq.edu/damg: Help send Duquesne School of Business students to the G.A.M.E Forum March 22-24, 2018 in New York City. (ends March 23)
