Connections Forged, For a Lifetime
Connections forged at Duke last. When our students graduate, they don’t leave Duke. Instead, they join a global community that provides lifelong support. Whether returning to campus time and again or networking across time zones, our authentic connections with 17,000-plus graduates endure and deepen over time—evidenced by active alumni mentorship of today’s students and an uncommonly high rate of annual giving.
Give to the Annual Fund
Support need-based financial aid, teaching and mentoring, and hands-on design learning. Or make a gift that can be applied to any vital need.
Class of 1996
I give to the Engineering Annual Fund to help students who may not have the financial means to attend Duke. I want them to have the same opportunity that I had to live out my dreams of attending Duke and graduating with a degree in biomedical engineering.
Mentor a Student
Mentorship matters. One generation coaches the next, sharing lessons, insight and experience. With the benefit of one-on-one alumni mentorship, our students launch confidently into lives defined by purpose. At the same time, the lives of our engaged graduates are enriched with the personal rewards that come from opening minds and doors for the next generation.
Join the Engineering Alumni Council
Every team requires leadership, and our Engineering Alumni Council represents the leaders among our global community of graduates. Its members play vital roles in a continuous vibrant exchange of ideas with faculty, students and senior leaders.
Class of 2001
I want to help current and future students explore and develop their passion, so they can truly make an impact in people’s lives.
