DukeEngage: The Inside Story from Students and Staff

Duke’s annual Family Weekend might look a little different this year, since all “events” will occur virtually. But that doesn’t mean you and your loved ones can’t learn more about DukeEngage!

Join us (via Zoom) on Saturday, October 17 at 3:00 pm for a informative session and Q&A with Inga Peterson, associate director of operations, and past participants from our programs in Jordan, Miami, Peru, and San Francisco.

Here’s a little preview:

Through DukeEngage, students and faculty collaborate with communities – locally and globally – to address critical social issues. During this fully-funded summer program, students work with Duke faculty and local partners; study how communities develop solutions and create change; and reflect on connections between purpose, action, consequence, and transformation. The program’s themes include public health, engineering, education, human rights, youth services, and many more. Make time for this popular info session to hear the inside story from staff and a panel of students who have been through the program from application to accomplishment. Bring your questions for a Q&A at the end of the session.
