More than 12,800 people participated in Duke’s first-ever university-wide climate survey, which was conducted in April 2021. Participants were asked to comment on the full range of discrimination, harassment, and other issues overseen by the Office of Institutional Equity. The results will inform policies and practices to help the university build a more equitable community and set a baseline by which Duke’s anti-racism work will be measured for years to come.
The survey was sent to approximately 34,000 students, faculty, and staff in the university including the School of Medicine and School of Nursing. The response rate was 24 percent for students, 53 percent for staff, and 41 percent for faculty and offers a statistically valid sample that will be representative of each of the groups and the overall institution.
Results will be compiled, analyzed, and shared in the coming months.
