Faculty Leadership Program

The Provost’s faculty leadership program incorporates approaches that are more consistently equitable and effective in addressing racism, expand current workshops to support units in producing systemic change, and works with partners inside and outside of Duke to offer programs and resources for leaders on topics related to diversity and equity.


Leadership Opportunities for Staff

The Executive Vice President and Chancellor for Health Affairs will also expand and monitor diverse leadership opportunities and ensure that systems, policies and procedures are in place to promote racial equity at all organizational levels.
