A Commitment to Alumni
Committee for Diversity, Equity & Inclusion
"As I lead our alumni to the end of our first 100 years and into our second century, we will be celebrating our journey and embracing our future. During the coming years, the Duke Alumni board will continue to champion the work we have started and continue to lead and represent our 190,000 diverse alums in an inclusive and equitable manner." – Vikas Patel ’96, M.D.’00, HS’04, President, Duke Alumni Board of Directors
