The Emily K Center is proud to be a part of the vibrant Durham community. We partner with almost 70 organizations annually who utilize the Center's multipurpose rooms, gymnasium, and stage to convene, learn, and grow. Each partnership is unique. Some Facility Partners meet here weekly to run their own programs, while others hold quarterly meetings or host a larger annual event.
The 29,000 square foot Emily K Center houses seven multi-purpose rooms and a stage that opens into a dividable gym featuring the 2001 NCAA Final Four floor. These spaces can accommodate academic and leadership programming, community and business meetings, workshops, and special events.
In addition to ongoing established partnerships, each year we look forward to building new partnerships with organizations who drive positive impact in our city and state. Organizations interested in using the Center for meeting space should contact the Center to request availability. Organizations interested in hosting workshops, programs, and events will need to complete our New Partner Process which includes an initial inquiry, exploratory meeting, development of a partnership agreement, and periodic check-ins after implementation. To begin this process please either call the Center at 919-680-0308 or complete the Initial Inquiry Form.
