Michael Domeracki

Dir, Acad Engagement for Acad Discipline
Religious Studies


Before coming to Duke I served as the assistant director for outreach at the Shelton Leadership Center at NC State where I oversaw campus and community-focused initiatives. In this role, I was responsible for curriculum design, teaching university-level courses, and designing and facilitating values-based leadership and ethical community engagement workshops for pre-college students, university students, and professionals. I also had the opportunity to create developmental programming and offer support for the high school children of military service members.

Before moving to North Carolina, I worked at the Center for Civic Leadership at Rice University for eight years where I designed curriculum for courses and experiential programming focused on student development through internships, undergraduate research, and preparation for post-baccalaureate opportunities and prestigious fellowships. I was also an adjunct faculty member in the Department of Religion. Through both of these roles, I taught courses in the critical study of religion, intensive writing seminars for first-year students, advanced undergraduate research support, preparation for graduate and professional schools, and experiential, co-curricular programs in leadership and civic action. In all of my work, my goal is to develop students into responsible and engaged citizens who understand how to leverage their education and personal experiences in their professional pursuits.

I received my PhD from Rice University, M.T.S. from Vanderbilt Divinity School, and B.A. in History from the University of Calgary.
