Dukes and Duchesses was established in 1979 as an organization of student ambassadors dedicated to serving Duke University. The members of the Dukes and Duchesses provide a glimpse into the student experience for campus visitors. Responsibilities include leading campus tours, staffing special events, and assisting with university ceremonies. Some examples of special events include staffing the president’s suite at football games, receptions at the university president’s home, Board of Trustee dinners, and Opening and Founders’ Day Convocations. Listed below are our current leadership for the organization.
