Event Details


Students, come learn about Duke’s summer +Programs on Thursday, January 19 from 11am – 1pm at the Gross Hall Energy Hub (West Campus)!

What Is Applied Ethics+?


Applied Ethics+ is a new full-time ten-week summer learning experience hosted by the Duke Initiative for Science and Society. Interdisciplinary teams of Duke undergraduate and graduate students will work with ground-breaking project partners addressing pressing real-world challenges in policy, technology, research, and ethics. Students will primarily work from Duke Campus, in teams of 3-6, on projects developed by their project partners and with the support of Duke Faculty and Staff. They will also share space and frequently learn with teams from other programs, including Data+, Code+, and Climate+. Students will receive a $5,000 stipend, with which they must arrange their own housing and travel. Project training support, including guest lectures and ethics/policy assessment workshops, are provided by speakers from across Duke University, as well as by outside industry and community partners. Join our mailing list to stay up to date on project opportunities and the application process! Extensive experience in policy, technology, research, and ethics is not a prerequisite to apply but is strongly encouraged. Technical data and computer science experience are also not necessary as projects will focus on research and policy challenges.
