Letter: Price restates Duke commitment to financial aid

I want to respond to some recent concerns that have been expressed about the future of the university’s commitment to financial aid with a simple statement: there will be no changes to the financial aid pledges made by Duke University to current undergraduates during your time as Duke students—not to health insurance, not to support for summer programs, not to any of the components that make a Duke education possible for those who could never have considered it so.
