Overview: Duke Center for International Development/ Duke-UNC Rotary Peace Center The Duke Center for International Development (DCID), a unit within Duke University’s Sanford School of Public Policy, advances international development policy and practice through interdisciplinary approaches to post-graduate education, mid-career training, international advising and research. Its faculty and staff continuously strive to create programs that meet the specific needs of each client and student. At DCID, faculty, staff, and students are driven by a shared vision: development that promotes peace and prosperity for all people. DCID hosts the Duke-UNC Rotary Peace Center, one of seven Rotary Peace Centers worldwide all supported by Rotary International. Rotary Peace Fellows at Duke are enrolled in the Master of International Development Policy (MIDP) graduate degree and across a range of academic programs and professional schools at UNC-Chapel Hill. 

The Rotary Peace Program targets globally diverse and qualified early to mid-career professionals from the international organizations, the public sector, civil society and those interested in changing careers. The program strives to enhance the knowledge and skills of early to mid-career professionals primarily from low-income and middle-income countries. The Rotary Peace Program also educates those from high-income countries who plan to dedicate their lives to conflict prevention and sustainable international development that focuses on peace and prosperity for all. All Rotary Peace Fellows at Duke and UNC are international students. Students have at least 3 to 5 years of professional, peacebuilding and/or development-related experience. The average number of years of work experience is 7. 

Today, DCID is represented around the world by an alumni base of over 6,000 individuals from more than 130 countries. DCID’s teaching, advising and training initiatives are contributing in a real and positive way to sustainable development in countries around the world. Started in 2002, the Rotary Peace Program has trained close to 1,300 leaders in peacebuilding and development, of whom over 160 graduated from Duke or UNC.
