Furthering the Excellence of our Faculty
Building Inclusive Excellence
The Provost has expanded the program to build inclusive excellence initiated over the past four years, with the Office of the Vice Provost for Faculty Advancement and the Office for Institutional Equity offering inclusive searches workshops for unit leaders and for search committees to promote inclusive and equitable hiring. Incentive funding for hiring diverse faculty has been expanded with a $16 million grant from the Duke Endowment. The effort is multifaceted and includes both individual hires and cluster hires focused on specific themes to build critical mass and expertise.
Faculty Diversity Dashboard
Our diversity hiring and retention efforts will be tracked through a new dashboard of faculty diversity data, which will be available to the entire Duke community.
Faculty Development and Community Building
The Office for Faculty Advancement provides resources and programs dedicated tor faculty development and community building to support faculty success and retention.
Promotion and Tenure Policy Revision
The Provost will continue to review and update our policies and guidelines on promotion and tenure to ensure that they are equitable and attentive to the biases that disadvantage underrepresented faculty and research on underrepresented communities.
