The DukeEngage program is more than just a short-term service immersion experience. DukeEngage provides numerous opportunities to connect civic engagement to academic, personal and professional development as both a prospective and returned DukeEngager.
Before students depart for their summer of engagement, they attend they will have prepared for their experience through the spring semester. Through program-specific training sessions, supplemental workshops, online modules, and an intensive two-day conference—the Fortin Foundation DukeEngage Academy—students build their skills and broaden their perspectives.
