BUILDING PARTNERSHIPS AND OPPORTUNITIES THAT ENRICH THE EDUCATION OF DURHAM’S YOUTH

Duke’s support for Durham Public Schools is broad. We celebrate the ingenuity of Durham’s students through initiatives like the Duke University Regional Spelling Bee; advance the professional development and community connections of school staff through programs such as Visions; and respond to schools’ most pressing needs through a range of programs that address kindergarten readiness, early literacy and Latino student engagement.

Support for local schools is a natural part of Duke’s mission as an educational institution. We believe Duke’s engagement with public schools not only enhances the education of local youth; it enriches the lives of Duke students, faculty and staff.
