Sustainable Oceans Alliance (SOA)

Duke University Sustainable logo Oceans Alliance


The Duke University chapter of the Sustainable Oceans Alliance strives to equip students who have a passion for ocean conservation with the tools to help make a change. Duke SOA aims to enhance the university’s ability to support the needs and interests of students who intend to pursue marine science and conservation, both educationally and professionally.

We hope to provide a forum for Duke students interested in marine science and conservation. We intend to educate the Duke community about opportunities in the marine sciences available at Duke and the Duke Marine Lab and facilitate the logistics for studying at DUML. We are recognized by the Nicholas School of the Environment, Duke Marine Lab, and the Sustainable Oceans Alliance.
