What Is POLIS?
POLIS, Duke's Center for Political Leadership, Innovation, and Service, has two missions:
- • To seek solutions to the problems of contemporary politics
- • To prepare a new generation of political leaders and engaged citizens
Our (outrageous) ambition is not simply to engage in politics as it is, but to enlist the creative energies of the Duke community—students, faculty, staff, and alumni—to promote what politics could be.
