A new team leads an Expanding Duke: University reaches for new stature as a national institution; Knight replaces Dr. Hart.

Record #:
Transitioning from a regional to a national university, Duke University is currently undergoing major renovations. Outside of spending over $11.2 million dollars on new buildings and an additional $1.2 million on the first purpose built oceanographic research vessel ever constructed in the United States, Duke has a new president. Replacing Dr. Deryl Hart, Dr. Douglas Maitland Knight, will work on continuing to expand the facilities of the Duke complex, propelling the university into competition with institutions such as Yale, Harvard, and Princeton.
