Civic Action Plan

Earlier this year, President Brodhead signed the Campus Compact 30th Anniversary Action Statement, committing Duke University to develop a Civic Action Plan by March 2017. As a member of Campus Compact, Duke is part of a national coalition of nearly 1,100 colleges and universities committed to the public purposes of higher education. In recent months, over 100 people from across campus and in the community have participated in sessions to identify priorities to strengthen civic engagement. Priorities organized into thematic areas including: community partnerships, ethics in civic engagement, faculty and staff participation, equity and justice and connecting civic engagement efforts.
