Amy Cole

Program Assistant, Duke-UNC Rotary Peace Center

Supports the Rotary Center and fellows, plans annual conference


Since 2008, Amy has been involved with the Duke-UNC Rotary Center and has had the rewarding experience of hosting several Peace Fellows. She has always enjoyed learning about foreign culture firsthand and has appreciated the opportunities presented through this program as well as her time spent traveling abroad. Amy is originally from Michigan, where she began her studies at Schoolcraft College. In 1996, she moved to North Carolina to attend UNC-Chapel Hill. She has taken several intermissions from college and just recently graduated in 2012 with a Bachelor of Arts from UNC-Chapel Hill. Before graduating, Amy worked as a mechanical design consultant for more than 10 years and also taught both curriculum and continuing education courses at Durham Technical Community College in the architectural design department. Amy has also spent significant time volunteering in her community and serving on county boards advocating for improving the public health of our citizens, especially for young children.

As an undergrad at UNC, I spent many hours relaxing and reading here. This small garden area emulates my personality, which is why it is my favorite place on campus. It is a quiet place where one can gather their thoughts even though there is so much going on outside of its space.”
