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. Co-sponsored by the Duke Women’s Center and 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.
