Duke Alumni Volunteering Hub


Duke’s Alumni Engagement and Development Office (AED) regularly receives inquiries from alumni, parents, friends, and other stakeholders asking how to volunteer with the University. There are a number of longer-term volunteer opportunities available throughout the University such as board service or mentoring. However, shorter term opportunities that could provide more immediate involvement are needed, and there currently is no place within Duke's digital resources to explore short term volunteer opportunities. 

A team of students will work with the Office of Information Technology, AED, and other stakeholders to develop a system where Duke alumni and other engaged volunteers could learn about short term volunteer opportunities, complete a volunteer application and check the status of their application. In addition, the tool could serve as a volunteer management system.
