Biographical / historical:

The Duke Center for Civic Engagement, now known as Duke Civic Engagement, opened in 2007 as part of DukeEngage, a service-learning initiative to make public engagement essential to the undergraduate experience at Duke. With a mission to "strengthen, connect and amplify the various ways that students, faculty and staff work to make a difference in the civic life of our communities," Duke Civic Engagement coordinates and supports public service activities across campus and within communities. The office also provides funding, student advising, workshops, and collaborates with students, faculty, and community-based partners. In 2009, a committee of faculty, staff, and students, known as the Klein-Wells committee, was commissioned to highlight how civic engagement was evolving at Duke and provide recommendations and strategies for incorporating it into research and instruction. Duke Civic Engagement is currently a division of the Office of Durham and Community Affairs. The civic engagement office absorbed the duties of the Community Service Center in 2020.
