DukeEngage empowers students to address critical human needs through immersive service, in the process transforming students, advancing the University’s educational mission, and providing meaningful assistance to communities in the U.S. and abroad. Students participate in an immersive (minimum of eight weeks) service experience by meeting a community need locally, domestically or internationally.

A brief description of the institution’s employee community service initiatives:
Duke's Office of Durham and Regional Affairs gives the Employee Community Service Award annually to a Duke employee who demonstrates an outstanding commitment to service. The award comes with a gift of $200 to the organization where the employee volunteers. Every year, the Doing Good in the Neighborhood campaign invites Duke employees to make a difference in Durham through community-based philanthropy. Whether big or small, our combined gifts have a great impact on the schools, neighborhoods and non-profits that benefit from the campaign. Employees can donate through payroll deduction, credit card or check. And Doing Good in the Neighborhood emphasizes donor choice, so you decide how your gift improves quality of life in Durham and the Triangle. You can give to any combination of the following categories: Community Care Fund; Health; Neighborhoods; Schools; Young People; United Way of the Greater Triangle. A program of Trinity College of Arts & Sciences, Duke Service-Learning supports faculty, staff, students, and community partners involved in service-learning courses, in order to foster a passion for learning and a commitment to making a difference in the world.
