Alumni Associations

Duke Alumni Association

Operating from the Alumni House at 614 Chapel Drive, the Duke Alumni Association, through its affiliate groups such as local clubs, classes, and school and college alumni associations, links more than 85,000 members with the university and one another. The alumni office staff coordinates educational, cultural, and social activities; provides avenues for involvement in university affairs; and promotes loyalty and esprit de corps throughout the Duke community. All alumni are automatically members of the alumni association. An active alumnus is one for whom a current mailing address is on file; a contributing member is one who pays annual dues and becomes involved in class, club, and other alumni activities. The alumni association sponsors many university-wide programs and services. Included among these are student programs, off-campus and on-campus gatherings, Duke Magazine, recognition and awards programs, and travel and continuing education opportunities.

Duke Nursing Alumni Council

Duke University School of Nursing has a rich history of educating nurse clinicians, researchers, and scholars committed to the nursing profession’s goal of accomplishing good in the face of challenging problems. The Duke Nursing Alumni Council is a representative body of such alumni who encourage and support the mission of educating transformative nursing leaders.

The Development and Alumni Affairs Office of the School of Nursing encourages alumni to maintain contact with the School of Nursing, with their classmates, and with currently enrolled students, and to increase involvement in the DUSON nursing community by participating in class reunions, organizing local alumni events, and giving financially. The office also provides opportunities for alumni to inform their classmates about changes in their lives and careers by sending information for publication in the class notes section of the annual newsletter.
