What's the value of a Duke University education to alumni after they spend a few years in the real world? What didn't they learn as a student that they wish they had? How do they keep learning?

At this event, young Duke alumni will share the experience they have had in life, career and learning after leaving the institution. There will be a panel discussion followed by breakout group discussions and networking around lifelong learning, career and personal development.

Duke students, faculty, staff and alumni are all welcome to attend.
