Briefing: Interested in Leading a DukeEngage Project?

February 23, 2018

Dear Colleagues:

Do you have expertise in specific regions of our country or world? Would you like to help Duke students apply what they learn in the classroom in real-world settings? Are you curious about how DukeEngage works for faculty — how it might strengthen your scholarship or research?

If you have an idea for a new program – even just a concept – I encourage you to reach out. We can kick things off with an informal conversation about your academic and research interests. We’ll talk about how those interests might translate into a program or project that will fit the DukeEngage structure, and I’ll share some logistics about how it all comes together.

For those of you whose ideas are a bit more developed already, please refer to two documents available on our website:

  1. DukeEngage Site Exploration Grant Info – funding to research potential program sites (deadline: 4/13/18)
  2. DukeEngage Faculty Call for Proposals – formal paperwork to propose a new program (deadline: 8/13/18)

These documents and additional information can be found attached and on the DukeEngage website:


Please be in touch if you’d like to learn more. We welcome new faculty members who want to get involved.
