DukeNY works to keep the over 15,000 Duke alumni in the New York metropolitan area connected with each other and with Duke. The chapter is one of the largest and most active in the Duke Alumni network, sponsoring more than 200 events each year.
By working collaboratively with all of Duke’s schools, affinity and identity groups, and university groups, DukeNY creates a comprehensive Duke presence in the Metro area. We plan and host Duke-wide signature events, educational and social programs, and networking opportunities across multiple industries. We gather to learn, to celebrate the achievements of Duke and its alumni, to participate in civic-engagement programs in our community, to welcome new Duke alumni, to interview prospective students and more.
Events in the region include:
- Major opportunity events such as private Duke evenings at the Whitney Museum of American Art and the 9/11 Memorial Museum
- General events around key programs such as Women’s Forum and Duke Alums Engage
- General events organized by affinity and identity groups, schools and other Duke programs
