Group Overview

Duke Southern California (SoCal) works to keep the over 5,000 Duke alumni in the Southern California 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 30 events each year.

By working collaboratively with all of Duke’s schools, affinity and identity groups, and university groups, Duke SoCal creates a comprehensive Duke presence in Southern California. 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
  • Networking/professional
  • 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.

Connect with other alumni: Use the group members and search functions on this site to find alumni in the region and beyond.

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.
