On Saturday evening (February 18) from 5pm to 8pm, join us on-campus for The Resilience Dinner: Celebrating FGLI Courage, Community and Connections. The evening will bring together the rich diversity of Duke’s FGLI community – undergraduate students, graduate/professional school students, faculty, alumni, and allies – for a relaxed and casual evening. There is a no dress code; just be yourself, you will be among friends.  We will start with a progressive dinner – students will change tables between courses to increase connections. We’ll follow with strolling dessert for even more interactions. Since it is one of our favorite shared experiences as Dukies, we’ll also broadcast the basketball game (at Syracuse) during dessert.

We can all list people who made a difference in our lives – family, teachers, neighbors, and more – by providing advice, sharing encouragement or helping us understand that we belong. Join us to share your story, career path, and how your past shaped who you are today. None of us can change the student experience that we had (good or bad), but we can have a positive impact on today's and future generations. 

If you have any questions or suggestions, please reach out to us and we’ll be glad to help.
