REAC Subcommittees

The four subcommittees of the Racial Equity Advisory Council (REAC) will make recommendations to the Council to review, approve, and forward to the Executive Leadership. The subcommittees will also draw on experts at Duke and outside to identify best practices upon which to base their recommendations.

These four subcommittees will work in collaboration and meet regularly to create a system where Duke’s racial equity work overlaps and fortifies the work in each area.
