Advancing Training and Education for All

Educational Resources

To ensure every unit on campus has the resources required for education and training, a library of anti-racist educational assets is being made available through anti-racism.duke.edu and the website for the Office for Faculty Advancement, including a video series that can serve as a primer on anti-racism as we work to develop more comprehensive resources. Additionally, a range of educational workshops and resources on anti-racism, implicit bias, and inclusion & belonging, along with modules specifically for hiring managers (such as "Equitable Search Practices"), are available through the Office of Institutional Equity.


“Foundations of Equity” Orientation Program

In 2021, we offered a new “Foundations of Equity” orientation program for incoming undergraduate students, which will be a part of first-year orientation in all future years.


New Anti-Racist Curricula

The Office of the Provost and the Office for Institutional Equity, with a grant from The Duke Endowment, are collaborating with faculty on designing new curricula for faculty, students and staff that will be informed by history and empower them to promote anti-racism, equity and inclusion on campus and in the academy. The 2021 University Course, titled "The Invention and Consequences of Race", will be offered in the fall semester to all undergraduate students.

Update, June 2022: The University Course will be offered again in Fall 2022. The Office of Faculty Advancement hosted an anti-racist curricula workshop in Spring 2022, and the REAC Education Subcommittee is developing assets for teaching and learning.


Annual Senior Leadership Training

In September 2020, President Price, along with the Board of Trustees, deans, officers, vice presidents, and vice provosts, engaged in an anti-racism and equity workshop. Duke’s senior university leadership is committed to continuing this training on an annual basis in the years ahead.
