President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll Recognizes Duquesne
Duquesne has been named to the 2015 President's Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll—the country's highest federal recognition for universities that strengthen communities. The University was the only Pittsburgh institution and was one of only four Pa. schools honored in the category of Economic Opportunity.

Gary Hart, Historians to Discuss the Power of the Presidency
Leading presidential historians will gather at Duquesne on Nov. 7 to discuss the power of the presidency and its role in the United States' constitutional system. The event, named for The Presidents and the Constitution: A Living History, written by Duquesne President Ken Gormley, will feature the following guests, each of whom wrote a chapter for the book: Gary Hart, James D. Robenalt, David Shribman and event moderator Lori Cox Han.

Week of Activities Planned to Honor Veterans
Recognition of our country’s veterans will span a full week, with events that include a lecture, documentary screening and military appreciation day at both men’s basketball and football games. The week’s activities culminate with the state’s largest morning gathering of veterans at the 18th Annual Veterans Day breakfast.

Special Financial Awards Available on Select Graduate Programs
New students can save up to 25 percent on tuition. Visit the graduate admissions page for a list of available programs and eligibility requirements.
