Faculty-led Programs

  • Have you ever thought about joining the DukeEngage faculty?
  • Does your research align with the DukeEngage mission?
  • Do you have expertise in specific regions of our world?

Most faculty become involved with DukeEngage by submitting an application to lead a group program. (Please refer to the PDF below to access proposal criteria.)

Does your research align with the DukeEngage mission? Do you have expertise in specific regions of our world? Civic engagement is a broad term that can include everything from volunteerism to democratic participation. We seek to support student projects ranging from: working in local schools; assisting with disaster recovery; volunteering with an international human rights organization; conducting HIV/AIDS education, outreach and prevention in communities around the world. What connects each of these experiences, and others like them, are that they involve individuals and groups tackling issues of public, even global, concern.  The most important avenue for Duke student engagement is to participate in DukeEngage programs built by Duke faculty. Experiencing civic engagement with faculty is central to our mission of helping students connect their DukeEngage experiences back to their lives at Duke upon return. 

We look forward to continuing our relationship with faculty who are leading current programs — and engaging new faculty through the development of new programs across the globe.
