Forging purposeful partnerships with our neighbors

The Duke Office of Durham and Community Affairs (DCA) forges purposeful partnerships with its neighbors in the region, with a particular focus on Duke’s home—Durham, NC. DCA connects area community partners and local governments with the people, research and institutional resources of Duke University and Duke Health. DCA also supports community partnerships through scholarship, service, and collaboration including volunteerism and philanthropic activities. DCA focuses on housing, health, education, employment and community with respective priorities within each focus area. Throughout this work Duke commits to anti-racism, health equity and engaged scholarship.
