History of Newslinks

Over the last several decades, the Office for Institutional Equity (OIE) has proudly produced the Diversity Newslinks Newsletter, which started as a print newsletter and later became an e-publication featuring diversity and inclusion highlights from throughout the Duke community. Robert Crouch, Director for Diversity and Inclusion, became the publication’s content manager in 2006 and added a book of the month feature spotlighting minority authors and historical impacts affecting communities of color and other marginalized groups. In recent years, Newslinks transitioned to a quarterly distribution that included interviews with prominent academic, educational, medical, and health professionals from Duke and the community. It branched out to also include other media and relevant articles impacting the nation in the area of diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI). It grew to become an important historical resource sharing the DEI work produced at OIE for the Duke Community. The archive below depicts the last eight years of e-newsletters.
