The Ripple Leadership Program

RIPPLE is designed to connect groups of motivated Duke alumni who are committed to supporting each other’s journeys—to create lives of meaning through their communities, leadership, and personal growth.

Unlike regional alumni associations, which put together events for alums living in the same area, this is more active, intentional and community-oriented. RIPPLE cohorts are curated communities, each with approximately 10-15 members. For further information or to be connected to a RIPPLE cohort, please contact Susan George James.

Currently, RIPPLE cohorts are located in:

  • Boston, MA
  • Washington, DC
  • San Francisco, CA
  • Los Angeles, CA
  • New York, NY
  • Triangle, NC

Dinner with a faculty member

Our faculty members are often on the road, presenting at conferences and speaking to policy makers. We’d be happy to connect with you when we are in your area. Visit this page to view a list of our traveling faculty, dates and dinner locations
