Community Engagement

Read the new Volunteer Blog or follow us on Facebook!

Serving our community is important to Durham Tech. In fact, our mission and strategic goals clearly commit us to engaging with our communities in ways that not only help those we serve, but also allow us as a college to learn. Service, in other words, allows us to extend the walls of our classrooms and the boundaries of our campuses, providing students, faculty, and staff with hands-on, real-world experiences while helping others.

 “Everybody can be great because anybody can serve. You don’t have to have a college degree to serve. You don’t have to make your subject and your verb agree to serve. You don’t have to know about Plato and Aristotle to serve. You don’t have to know Einstein’s theory of relativity to serve. You don’t have to know the second theory of thermodynamics in physics to serve.  You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.

– Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.  Excerpted from “The Drum Major Instinct,” 1968.
