Foregrounding Research

We will be seeking ways of foregrounding research on slavery and the history of the South, on social and racial equity, and racism through university communications and leveraging it in our own institutional planning and decision-making.

Planning

Institutional Research

We are committing to a dedicated program of ongoing institutional research, including regular surveys of Duke students, faculty and staff, to better understand and monitor our organizational culture and climate.  Results of this research will be made public and used to assess both overall institutional progress and to evaluate leadership across the university and health system.

Institutes, Initiatives, and Centers

Duke’s University-Wide Interdisciplinary Institutes, Initiatives & Centers (UICs) have developed comprehensive proposals to expand education and research that engages with the multi-faceted dimensions of structural racism and anti-racism.
