We know the process can be tough—and we're here for you. The Duquesne University Cultural Ambassadors (DUCA) is a student organization that works closely with the Center for Global Engagement to build an inviting and inclusive atmosphere for international students.

As a prospective or incoming international students, we'll pair you with a Cultural Ambassador—a current student who has already been through the process of settling into a new environment. They will be your personal connection to the university as they help you work through the decision, acceptance, orientation and settling-in phase of the admissions and arrival process.
