Social Change Through Service

Social Change through Service is a new initiative, kickstarted by Duke Diya, that strives to bring Duke students together for the common purpose of service through team-based service events. We also hope to start meaningful conversations about the racial, cultural, religious, and social barriers that the Duke community constructs that prevents students from interacting with a diverse group of people. This program is in collaboration with twelve organizations:

  • Diya
  • Black Students Alliance
  • Mi Gente
  • Native American Students Alliance
  • Center for Race Relations
  • Voices for Interfaith Action
  • Muslim Students Association
  • Hindu Students Association
  • Center for Multicultural Affairs
  • Duke Global Health Institute
  • Duke Partnership for Service
  • Duke Student Government

world food day: bringing hunger home

The first SCTS event was held on World Food Day, October 16, in the Bryan Center. At this meal packaging drive in collaboration with Stop Hunger Now, students were divided into teams and packaged 10,000 meals that will be sent to orphanages, school-feeding programs, and crisis-relief areas. World Food Day: Bringing Hunger Home is an event that started a conversation about hunger globally and locally and brought students together to make a change.

Check out the coverage of the event by duke:

More than 100 Duke University students fought hunger by packing meals with Stop Hunger Now on Friday, October 16, 2015. The students’ effort will provide over 10,000 meals to orphanages, school feeding-programs and crisis-relief groups around the world. This was the first event of the new Social Change through Service initiative, started by Duke Diya, in hopes of uniting the diverse student body for the common purpose of service.
