Duke Student Alumni Board

Making the transition from student to alum

The Duke Student Alumni Board works to foster communication and collaboration among students and alumni. Members get involved in Duke Alumni programs, conceive and plan student engagement activities and help spread the spirit of Forever Duke among their peers.

What We Do

  • Serving as student ambassadors for the DAA and the Duke Office of Development
  • Providing advice and feedback about new and existing programs for student and alumni engagement
  • Attending board and alumni events
  • Representing student views on panels
  • Developing and implementing strategies for outreach to students
