The Dukeengage program was created to embody three central values of Duke University: “globalization, interdisciplinarity, and learning in service of others.” The program supports civic engagement projects and involves around 3,000 students in 600 communities. This report focuses on the perceptions of community partners concerning the students and the DukeEngage experience. It provides a summary of results from the Community Partner Impact Survey (developed by DukeEngage staff) and identifies valuable volunteer traits and organizational expectations of student volunteers. It also assesses perceptions of the strengths and weaknesses of DukeEngage students.
