Brazil Initiative

What is the Brazil Initiative?

The Brazil Initiative (DBI) aims to develop deeper connections with Brazil through faculty and student research programs, university and industry connections, and efforts to bring leading Brazilian scholars, public officials and artists to Duke.

The initiative supports innovative two-way exchanges that foster academic and policy research while establishing new courses and experiential learning opportunities for undergraduates at Duke.

Past Brazil Initiative projects and events have focused on energy, environment, health, human development, art, politics and governance.
