Immersion

The breadth of DukeEngage’s U.S.-based and international immersion programs, which place students in communities worldwide for a minimum of eight weeks, is a cornerstone of the experience. Throughout the summer, students work with Duke faculty and local partners to address societal issues while learning how communities develop solutions and create change.

Partnership

Strong partnerships, built on the long-standing community relationships and research projects of our faculty directors, are the foundation of DukeEngage. These partnerships are community-driven, with faculty-developed programs guided by interests defined by representatives of the organizations with whom students work.

Reflection

Reflection is the process of deriving meaning from experience. It provides the structure in which we translate experience into knowledge and is a crucial component of every DukeEngage program. During DukeEngage, students use reflection to discover connection between purpose, action, consequence, and change.
