The School of Business Administration gave Spencer Duke the educational foundation which facilitated the success he has enjoyed in his professional career. As a supporter of UM Athletics, Spencer has fond childhood memories with his father, Clifford Duke, BBA ’75, and his grandfather. “I want the University of Miami to be successful because it elevates the status and qualifications of alumni which in turn provides valuable and marketable prospective employees in the workforce.” Moving upward as a national institution is something Spencer takes great pride in. “Loyalty means making a commitment and contributing to University of Miami.” As a Citizens Board member, Spencer takes pride in helping corporations in Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties get access to the University of Miami, ranking number 48 nationally, according to U.S. News and World Report 2014 “Best Colleges” edition. Watching UM win the 2001 national football championship was his most memorable experience along with the day he graduated with a master’s in business administration. As one journey with UM came to a close, he now looks forward to watching other ’Canes succeed while representing the U in the business world.
