Celebrating the past, present, and future

ʿⱦapp is celebrating 60 years of impact from its opening September 5, 1961 until today.

Over six decades, the College has grown exponentially in footprint, academic offerings, regional impact, and student body. Opening with just 34 students, Durham now serves nearly 18,000 students a year in more than 100 credit and non-credit programs.

As we celebrate this milestone anniversary, we invite you to explore our 60 for 60 campaign, find 60th anniversary events, and view photos of ʿⱦapp through the years.
