Give your time, get so much more
If you want to deepen your connection to Duke, its students and alumni, there’s no better way than by sharing your time and talent with the university. Our volunteers are ambassadors, organizers, energizers and mentors. They uphold Duke traditions and make the power of the alumni network come alive for the whole community. These are just a few of the ways you can make a difference for Duke – and yourself.
Volunteers drive the activity of Duke Alumni chapters around the world. You can help mobilize alumni in your area by planning programs, hosting and ogranizing events or even just suggesting ideas for ways to connect alumni in your community.

Reconnect friends, rekindle memories
What makes or breaks a class reunion? The commitment and energy of our class volunteers. We need alumni to help spread the word about their class reunion, mobilize classmates, organize affinity groups and promote participation in class giving. With your help, we'll be sure it's a reunion you and your friends will never forget.

Help build Duke’s next class
Each year, more than 4,500 alumni interview thousands of the nation’s top high-school students as part of DAA’s Alumni Admissions Advisory Committees (AAACs). Alumni interviews play a valuable role in the admissions process — both providing prospective students a chance to introduce the personality behind the application and giving alumni the opportunity to express the unique Duke spirit in a way that no brochure can capture.
Get involved: Contact firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll connect you with your area AAAC chair
Duke Reader Project
Give a student professional feedback
The Duke Reader Project, a partnership between DAA and Duke’s Thompson Writing Program, recruits alumni to offer feedback on student writing assignments in their professional fields. Through just a simple act of reading and offering your expertise, you’ll help students sharpen the communication and reasoning skills they need to succeed in their chosen professions.
