Propose a New DukeEngage Program

Does your research align with the DukeEngage mission? Do you have expertise in specific regions of our world? Civic engagement is a broad term that can include everything from volunteerism to democratic participation. We seek to support student projects ranging from: working in local schools; assisting with disaster recovery; volunteering with an international human rights organization; conducting HIV/AIDS education, outreach and prevention in communities around the world. What connects each of these experiences, and others like them, are that they involve individuals and groups tackling issues of public, even global, concern.  The most important avenue for Duke student engagement is to participate in DukeEngage programs built by Duke faculty. Experiencing civic engagement with faculty is central to our mission of helping students connect their DukeEngage experiences back to their lives at Duke upon return.

Site exploration funds offer faculty and staff who wish to explore the establishment of a new program a travel grant of up to $3,000.  These applications are due Friday , April 14th, 2017.

The call for proposals for new faculty invites faculty and staff to propose a new DukeEngage program for summer 2016 or after.  Proposals are due on  Monday,  August 14h, 2017.
