Civic Lives at Duke

The Duke Office of Civic Engagement aims to support the many ways Duke engages. We believe civic engagement encompasses community service but also advocacy, social innovation, engaged scholarship, and community and regional development. The Office prides itself on being nimble and responsive to grassroots efforts and facilitating collegial conversations related to civic engagement. As part of this effort, we are conducting and filming a series of “Civic Lives” interviews. These interviews, featured to the right, aim to highlight the unique ways Duke students, faculty, staff, and alumni use the university as a catalyst to make a difference – locally, nationally, and globally.
