BROADENING DUKE'S ROLE AS A PARTNER AND ADVOCATE IN DURHAM

Durham and Regional Affairs

The Office of Durham and Regional Affairs seeks to apply knowledge in service of society through community engagement as highlighted in Duke’s strategic plan, “Making a Difference.” By broadening the university’s role as a partner and advocate for economic and community development, the office works to improve quality of life and public education in Durham and to build strong Duke-Durham relations. The office oversees the Duke-Durham Neighborhood Partnership and the Community Service Center.

Duke-Durham Neighborhood Partnership

The Duke-Durham Neighborhood Partnership works alongside residents of the 12 neighborhoods closest to campus, advancing community priorities with a focus on affordable home ownership,educational achievement, youth outreach, neighborhood safety, and quality health care.

Community Service Center

The Community Service Center serves as a clearinghouse of volunteer opportunities to get Duke students and employees involved in Durham. Through a variety of signature engagement programs, the Community Service Center works to connect and strengthen the Duke and Durham communities.
