Duffy Program

The Duffy Partnerships give students an understanding of how institutions interact within society. At each institutional site, students gain an overview of the culture, goals, structure, resources and strategies available, then focus on a specific project within the organization. During a weekly seminar, they examine how the various institutions intersect.

Each student works with a sociology faculty member, a second faculty partner, and Partnerships Coordinator Carol Wickersham. The faculty and community partners also share perspectives about the issues and efforts at each site and the implications for the community.
