Rubenstein Student-Athlete Civic Engagement Program
Recognizing the challenge for student-athletes to participate in many study abroad and other off-campus programs, Duke Athletics launched the Rubenstein Student-Athlete Civic Engagement Program (ACE) in 2015 to provide Duke student-athletes with fully-funded opportunities for immersive international service and community engagement experiences. ACE remains a unique initiative within the NCAA. ACE collaborates with partner organizations to develop projects that address community needs. Each summer, 35-40 Duke student-athletes engage in ACE international service programs across the globe, focusing on themes like education, coaching, environmental sustainability and conservation, and health outreach.
