March 2021 Update

We are writing to provide the TIP community with an important update on programming opportunities as TIP continues to transition into a new and reimagined unit within the Duke University community.  In light of ongoing COVID-19 health and safety considerations, TIP is unable to offer any in-person programming opportunities through the Summer of 2021.  TIP families interested in an academic experience offered by Duke in the Summer of 2021 are encouraged to review an exciting suite of virtual course offerings administered by Duke University Youth Programs (  for students in grades 6-8.  The Duke University Pre-College ( team has also developed a diverse selection of rigorous virtual course offerings this summer for students in grades 9-12.

Moving forward, please direct all inquiries pertaining to TIP to   Please provide us with the name of TIP student and TIP ID number if applicable so that we may respond to your email as expeditiously as is possible.
