UBUNTU is a SLG at Duke University located at 301 & 302 Oregon Street.  We are changemakers in our communities – Duke, Durham, and the world.  We each have a vision for the world, and we use our talents and passions to bring the world closer to that ideal.

Ubuntu is a word used across the African continent to describe a feeling of togetherness. The widely accepted definition is put simply: “I am because we are.” Ubuntu celebrates human connectedness, and we believe our own community and vision reflect this ethos throughout. Archbishop Desmond Tutu has explored Ubuntu at length:

“A person with Ubuntu is open and available to others, affirming of others, does not feel threatened that others are able and good; for he or she has a proper self assurance that comes with knowing that he or she belongs in a greater whole and is diminished when others are humiliated or diminished, tortured or oppressed, or treated as if they were less than who they are.”
