Go·Grow·Give is the Nicholas School’s three-fold Alumni Engagement program with a mission of providing you and all of our 5,000+ graduates with valuable opportunities to:
  • Go to events and activities and connect with your fellow alumni;
  • Grow your connection to the Nicholas School and today’s amazing students and faculty through volunteering time and expertise; and
  • Give back to the Nicholas community by contributing your philanthropic support.



The Nicholas School hosts dozens of events, both stateside and internationally, to bring together alumni of different ages and career stages to connect professionally and personally. In addition to our annual alumni reunion on campus, regional groups and networking socials offer great ways to connect. To stay connected and hear about events, visit our news and events website, and be sure to register and update your information on the Duke Alumni Association (DAA) network.



Sharing your wisdom and experience with today’s Nicholas students and alumni is a valuable way for you to get involved and help prepare those following in your footsteps for professional leadership. Whether addressing a Nicholas class as a guest speaker, providing career advice to current students, or hosting an event in your community, you are sure to get as much, or more, out of the experience as the people you meet.
