Ready to make a difference at Duke?

Click on the button above (or use this link) to join the Duke Graduate Students Union.

When you click on the link, you will be brought to a page on, the platform that DGSU uses to manage its membership. A few things to keep in mind as you sign up:

1. Enter an email address (preferably a account) and a password to create an account on PledgeUp. After creating an account, you can then enter the other requested information and become a dues-paying member of DGSU!

2. Union dues are $12 month. Please select whether you are on a 9- or 12-month funding schedule. If possible, please use a bank draft from a checking or savings account as your method of payment. By using a bank draft rather than a credit or debit card, you ensure that 100% of your dues payment directly supports DGSU, rather than diverting a portion of your dues to your bank in the form of a transaction fee. 

3. You will be asked if you would like to contribute an additional sum to SEIU's Political Action Committee (PAC). PAC contributions are purely voluntary and support pro-labor political advocacy. IMPORTANT: if you are an international student, you may not legally contribute money to a PAC in the US, so please skip this section of the sign-up page.

By uniting with your colleagues, you're committing to a better Duke. Joining DGSU is just the first step! Check out DGSU's working groups on continuation fees, harassment, healthcare and pay to see how you can make a difference!
