Duke Alumni Board of Directors

The Duke Alumni Board of Directors is the University’s volunteer leadership advisory board representing the global alumni community.  The mission of the Board is to engage, connect, and celebrate alumni, students, and friends of Duke University.

A Message from Board President Vikas Patel '96, MD'00, HS'01-'04

It is an exciting time for Duke University, our alumni, and the Duke Alumni Board of Directors as we head into our centennial year in 2024. We represent the voice of almost 195,000 alumni and the Duke Alumni Board member's role can be defined by 3 areas of focus:

  1. Learner: Becoming educated and familiar with what is happening at the University
  2. Advisor: Providing input to Alumni Engagement and Development staff
  3. Ambassador: Serving as a steward and representative of Duke University and its alumni

As esteemed Duke University alumni, I encourage you to stay connected and engaged with our alma mater. Your active involvement fosters a vibrant community and empowers future generations of Duke students to excel. Forever Duke.
