Help build Duke's next class

Alumni Admissions Advisory Council (AAAC)

There are thousands of volunteers in more than 225 AAACs across the world, and we are looking for more enthusiastic alumni to interview prospective students and share their knowledge of Duke.

As an interviewer, you are both gathering and providing information. Although the interview is not a mandatory part of the application process, each year thousands of students anticipate and accept the invitation to engage in a Duke interview. The interview provides a great opportunity for:

  • the interviewer to assist Admissions Officers by gathering additional information about the student and reporting back to Duke.
  • the student to learn more about Duke through the information you provide.

Eligibilty

AAAC volunteers must be an alumnus/alumna of Duke’s undergraduate or graduate/professional schools.

Volunteers must:

  • Be knowledgeable about and be able to discuss Duke’s undergraduate programming and student life with prospective students.
  • Have availability during the interview season (September-February).
  • Complete the online training process and follow instructions.

You are ineligible to participate if:

  • You don’t feel comfortable talking about Duke’s undergraduate experience.
  • You work as a college admissions professional, independent college counselor, or college counselor at a community based organization.
  • You have a child applying to Duke during the current interview season.

Time Commitment

  • We ask each volunteer to be willing to interview 3-5 students from September-February.
  • Each interview should last between 30-45 minutes.
  • Each interview will require a written evaluation.
