Engaging Through Duke
We are excited to introduce the first video we have produced as part of our new multimedia series, Engaging Through Duke (featured to the right). Our office exists to support the many ways Duke engages with community partners. We believe civic engagement encompasses community service but also advocacy, social innovation, engaged scholarship and community and regional development. We pride ourselves on being nimble and responsive to grassroots efforts and facilitating collegial conversations related to civic engagement across campus. Archives of our Civic Lives video series may be found here.
