Partner Experience

Through service-learning courses, Duke students have tutored and mentored children, interacted with patients and elders, conducted research, developed curricula, built houses, designed devices for the disabled, staged chemistry demonstrations, tested water quality, and produced documentaries.

Our partners value the skills and commitment our students bring to their organizations, with the vast majority wanting our students to return to their agency or site. In a recent survey of community partners, more than 90% agreed or strongly agreed that "Duke students' service helped my organization meet its mission and goals," while almost all surveyed agreed to strongly agreed that the "Students' work effectively address a real community need."

Over the years, we've been fortunate to work with hundreds of leading organizations throughout North Carolina.
