“I think part of Duke’s mission as a university is to create citizens of the world, who are aware and knowledgeable of cultures outside of the walls of Duke. ACE offers the chance for student-athletes like me who are unable to go abroad during the year to engage with communities different than our own. The program simultaneously offers a chance for me to use the teamwork skills I’ve learned at Duke to give back.”
