What is the Alumni Council?

The Alumni Council is comprised of Nicholas School of the Environment Alums who are elected by the school to serve on a Board for a period of three years each. The Council is responsible for fostering better relationships between alumni, alumni and the school, and between alumni and the student body. Their mandate is ultimately to serve the school on a range of issues as set forth by the Dean of the Nicholas School. The Council convenes once a semester on Duke’s campus to engage with students and to discuss initiatives and also participates in frequent communications with school administration throughout the year.


Go·Grow·Give is the Nicholas School’s signature alumni engagement program that also serves as the framework for the Alumni Council's roles and responsibilities. Members are required to complete various Go·Grow·Give leadership roles, which are aligned with the school’s and the office of development and alumni relations (ODAR) strategic objectives.
