Toward our
Second Century

Engaging our networks

Duke will engage a global network of alumni and friends.

We will invest in developing next-generation engagement platforms to extend and deepen all aspects of university life, creating a robust, global, continually evolving human-development cooperative. We will offer our alumni new opportunities for continuing education; we should also see them as a deep reservoir of talent, drive and experience that we can draw upon to advance our educational, research, and service missions.

The global network

Forever Learning Institute

The Forever Learning Institute, launched this year, is an interdisciplinary, virtual educational program exclusively for Duke alumni. Already thousands of Duke alumni are learning from our faculty and taking courses in four focus areas, stretching the Duke education around the world.

The Karsh Alumni and Visitors Center

The new Karsh Alumni and Visitors Center rises at the entrance to campus along Chapel Drive. This building is the hub of the Duke Alumni Association’s activity on our campus, the epicenter of a newly empowered network of alumni. We have the potential for our alumni at Duke to become our 11th school with new opportunities for continuing education, engagement, mentorship, and service missions.
