Project Change is a pre-orientation program that provides an immersive leadership experience in which participants live, learn, and work in Durham, competing with a team of  peers to find ways to solve the city’s critical problems. Students have fun, meet friends, and get to know the city where they’ll call home for the next four years. Run by the Kenan Institute for Ethics, the program invites incoming first years to spend eight intense days of taking risks, making mistakes, and meeting challenges with a select group of students, staff, community leaders, and faculty. They join a diverse team of eighteen peers and are given the adventure of a lifetime—to change the lives of complete strangers in creative and dramatic ways.

Complete information, including required forms, can be found at the Project Change page. Registration is completed through Duke Student Affairs.
