Connections Forged, For a Lifetime

Connections forged at Duke last. Our graduates join a global community that provides lifelong support.

Duke’s authentic connections with 17,000-plus graduates endure and deepen over time—evidenced by 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.

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. More than 400 alumni have been carefully matched as one-on-one mentors for our current students. We’re recruiting alumni mentors now.

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.
