Greater access to civic engagement and service opportunities for student-athletes

The Rubenstein-Bing Student-Athlete Civic Engagement Program (ACE) is a collaboration between Duke and Stanford University.

ACE provides short-term study abroad opportunities for student-athletes from both schools.

Students can pursue three-week summer service experiences in China, India, South Africa or Vietnam.

In each of the four programs, students work with community partners on service themes including health outreach, education, conservation, coaching and more.
