Duke Office of Civic Engagement

The Duke Office of Civic Engagement incubates, coordinates and amplifies the various ways that students, faculty and staff work to make a difference in the civic life of our communities. Serving as the hub for civic engagement activities across campus, the Office supports Duke’s collaborations with communities on pressing social challenges. We hope this site helps you find your way to meaningful involvement in the community and with one another.
