One of the Center’s three strategic goals is to form students into transformative Christian leaders, well-prepared for the mission of reconciliation in the church, academy, and world. Duke Divinity students are at the center of the Center for Reconciliation’s mission.
We serve students with three key programs:
- Teaching Communities Internships
Ministry formation in leading communities of reconciliation practice around the world through 10-week summer field education placements.
- Pilgrimage of Pain & Hope
Every spring, the Center takes a group of divinity students on a 5-day immersion experience into two communities of hope and pain. This pilgrimage is an opportunity for spiritual growth and to deepen your theological and classroom learning with wisdom from community leaders with life-long experience in reconciliation.
- Academic Programs
Duke Divinity School is one of the country’s best centers for theological learning, with a historical commitment to reconciliation, justice, and peacemaking. In addition to the courses taught by the Center for Reconciliation faculty, many professors focus their core classes and advanced seminars in topics of reconciliation and justice.
