Make a difference the Duke way

Duke Alums Engage

DAE Week 2018: April 27-May 6

At Duke you learned to make your knowledge count – to see challenges in your community as opportunities to apply your insights. Our signature program, Duke Alums Engage, helps alumni fulfill their commitment to learn and serve. Inspired by the same values at the core of the DukeEngage undergraduate service-learning program, Duke Alums Engage helps alumni tap into the spirit of knowledge in service to society – to change your world in a uniquely Duke way.

Building a Garden and a Community

Duke alumni in Richmond, Va., plant a garden in the city's Highland Park neighborhood, one of the dozens of places where alumni are sharing Duke spirit by serving their communities.
