Team Kenan is Taking Applications

Team Kenan is looking for applications for the spring semester!

Team Kenan is a part of the Institute’s social and intellectual community, creating spaces for students, faculty, and Institute staff to think and talk about ethics outside of the classroom in fun and engaging ways. TK programs serve as a complement to the Institute’s curricular offerings, giving students who are interested in ethics additional opportunities to chat, think, and challenge one another and the wider Duke community. The team, made up of a diverse cross-section of Duke students, engages the Duke community through “couching”: students are welcome to sit in Kenan’s mobile living room and discuss selected topics related to ethics. Meant to inspire spontaneous, unplanned moments of connection, the TK Couch brings ethical inquiry — and comfy chairs — to Duke students wherever they might be.

Members of Team Kenan develop interviewing and surveying skills; learn methods for effective communication in conversation, writing, and design; work on personal and professional presentations; and take part in event planning. Team Kenan participants receive a $1,000 honorarium per term.
