A Message to Our Alumni Community
As news of COVID-19 continues to develop, I want to extend a note to our more than 180,000 Duke alumni throughout the world. As Duke President Vincent E. Price noted recently in an email to the entire Duke community, “this is an unprecedented challenge for our university community.” And while Duke is poised to meet that challenge here on campus, President Price also noted that we join a “community of extraordinary people”—students, faculty, staff, parents, friends of Duke and alumni—who can support each other through this time of uncertainty.
I know that the response to COVID-19 is drastically changing the way you are living and working. During this time, please know that your Duke Alumni Association is here to support you – through timely updates on our events and programming, pointing you to Duke resources to learn more information, and sharing uplifting stories about how Blue Devils are coming together during this time.

This page will continue to provide updates on our events and programs (including a helpful FAQ) and point you to a few Duke sites where you can learn more about how Duke is addressing COVID-19 concerns.
We don’t have all of the answers now, and the answers we do have can change quickly. So we appreciate your support and patience as we navigate COVID-19 together. Please continue to visit Duke’s official COVID-19 response site coronavirus.duke.edu and this page for updates as they are made available.
Until then, I want to wish all of our Blue Devils throughout the world health, safety and the gift of the support of your alumni community at this challenging time.
Forever Duke,
Sterly L. Wilder '83
Associate Vice President
Duke Alumni Affairs
