Diversity and Inclusion Services
We work with Duke leaders, managers, faculty, staff, and administrators to help them build a healthy, thriving work environment where all team members feel valued and respected. Our trainings, workshops, presentations, and strategy design services empower learners to work effectively with those who have different worldviews, perspectives, backgrounds, values, and experiences.
Complaints and Concerns
Duke is dedicated to creating a work and learning environment that is free from harassment and discrimination. If you have a concern about either of these issues, the Office for Institutional Equity is here to help. We can answer your questions, connect you to resources, or help you file a complaint. Duke policies prohibit retaliation against anyone for coming forward with a concern or submitting a complaint.
Equal Opportunity and Affirmative Action
The equal opportunity and affirmative action (EO/AA) area offers university-wide guidance on Title VI and VII of the Civil Rights Act, and Title IX of the Education Amendments Act and the Vietnam Era Veterans Readjustment Assistant Act. We also serve as the university's liaison to the federal government in matters of contract compliance concerning equal employment opportunity. EO/AA develops the university's Affirmative Action Plan, oversees its implementation, and reviews employee recruitment, hiring, and other personnel actions.
