A Message to the Duke Community from Vice President Kimberly Hewitt

"We can disagree and still love each other unless your disagreement is rooted in my oppression and denial of my humanity and right to exist." — James Baldwin

Our hearts are breaking over the tragic state of our country. The stress and pain of this time is overwhelming for many of us — people of color and allies. I write to simply acknowledge the moment and to remind you that the Office for Institutional Equity is here to support you. We are working diligently and consistently during this period of self-isolation to respond to your needs. Please contact us at 919-684-8222 or oie-help@duke.edu.
 — Kimberly Hewitt, Vice President for Institutional Equity & Chief Diversity Officer
