All Duke faculty are invited to submit a Letter of Intent to propose a new Duke Immerse. Successful proposals are clearly articulated and build on the faculty team’s expertise; these may include proposals that are fully disciplinary or interdisciplinary, incorporate Service-Learning or complement an existing Bass Connections project or DukeEngage program. Proposals that diversify existing Duke Immerse opportunities and reflect the expertise of Duke faculty receive priority.
Duke Immerse is a semester-long program for undergraduates conceived of by Duke faculty. Individual themes are often research-intensive and should include off-campus experiences to enhance the curriculum.
Themes involving travel are expected to follow related university policies and meet with the Duke Immerse Director to develop a risk management plan prior to the program offering. The proposal process is iterative; after the letter of interest is reviewed and approved, the faculty work with the Duke Immerse Director to articulate and develop the program details and budget.
