The Kenan Institute for Ethics promotes the experiences and reflection that turn undergraduates into ethical leaders and global citizens through programs such as DukeImmerse: Uprooted/Rerouted, DukeEngage: Dublin, Kenan Summer Fellows, and internships. To get a sense of their experiences, read the journals that students write as a reflection on their time involved with various programs.
