Duke Puget Sound works to keep the over 2,700 Duke alumni in the Puget Sound area connected with each other and with Duke. The chapter has a dynamic series of programs and an very active and engaged group of local alumni leaders.
By working collaboratively with all of Duke’s schools, affinity and identity groups, and university groups, Duke Puget Sound creates a strong local Duke presence. 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:
Regular events around key programs such as Women’s Forum and Duke Alums Engage
Regular events organized by affinity and identity groups, schools and other Duke programs
Forever Learning events including Faculty Fellow speakers, talks by other Duke faculty and leaders, and a book club
Social events including game watches, young alumni events, holiday parties
and much more
How to get involved:
Update your contact information: Alumni automatically receive updates about Duke Alumni regional groups based on the address we have on record. If you’re not hearing about activities where you live, update your contact information in your profile.
Attend an event: Find a social, cultural or educational event on our calendar and sign up. You’ll meet interesting people with all different kinds of Duke backgrounds, but who share your desire to stay connected to Duke.

Volunteer! We need your help to create an active and dynamic region. Nearly 10,000 Duke alumni participate in projects that support Duke’s academic mission, placing Duke’s knowledge, influence and insight in service of society and enriching their own lives in the process.
