The primary purpose of the DUNE near detector is to constrain uncertainties relevant for the long baseline oscillation program, especially uncertainties on the flux prediction, neutrino cross section modeling, and neutrino energy reconstruction. I will present an overview of the near detector concept, with particular focus on the long-baseline physics motivation for the design.
