Our Actions

Supporting our Staff

Making Duke Career Pathways More Accessible

Duke is expanding internship, training, and apprenticeship programs to make Duke career pathways more accessible.


New Professional Development Opportunities

Duke is launching new professional-development opportunities for our staff at all levels, with a focus on reaching historically underserved populations.


Human Resources Data and Analyses

Human Resources will track promotions and new hires and offer pay-equity analyses on a regular, ongoing basis. These data will be available to any member of the Duke community beginning in January.


Comprehensive Campus Survey

More than 12,800 students, faculty and staff responded to Duke University’s first university-wide survey on diversity, equity and inclusion in April 2021. Results from the survey will be used as a baseline to assess current and planned programmatic and policy changes designed to help Duke become a more just and equitable community for all its members. A written report will be issued to the Duke community later in the summer.


Annual Review Process

Equity and anti-racism will be included in the ongoing annual review process for direct reports to the president in order to ensure that university leadership continues to consider this a priority for the future.
