Founded in 1997, The Samuel DuBois Cook Society was established in the spring of that year to honor Dr. Cook, a retired Duke University professor who was the first African-American professor to hold a regular faculty appointment at a predominantly white college or university in the South. The society recognizes the years of service that Dr. Cook has offered to Duke University, to the cause of African-American advancement, and to the betterment of relations between people of all backgrounds. The mission of the Cook Society is to recognize, celebrate, and affirm the presence of African-American students, faculty, and staff at Duke University.


To protect the health and safety of our community, we have decided to shift the Samuel DuBois Cook Society 2022 Awards Ceremony to a virtual format. We will hold the ceremony via Zoom on Tuesday, February 22, 2022 at 7:00 PM.

Confirmed sponsors and guests will receive the Zoom link by email. Visit the Cook Society webpage for more information.
