Mission Statement

Duke Black Alumni (DBA) is an organization dedicated to maximizing the success of the University’s current and future Black alumni.  DBA’s membership is multicultural, global and comprised of alumni across all undergraduate, graduate and professional schools.  With the benefit of key historical efforts, and the cross-sectional participation of students, faculty, staff, parents and friends, DBA will increase the engagement of its expansive Black community by:

  • Creating local chapters in every city that contains a critical mass of Black alumni;
  • Establishing engaging programs for the social and professional benefit of its alumni;
  • Building deep and lasting relationships between Black alumni;
  • Fostering meaningful ties with students to attract, support, develop and empower the next generation of Black alumni;
  • Structuring consistent communication with alumni and campus stakeholders to highlight noteworthy achievements and events;
  • Facilitating the expansion of financial and intellectual giving from Black alumni for the betterment of the University.
