REAC Subcommittee: Communications


Information at Duke is communicated in such a way that it reflects the diversity of our community’s lived experiences and advances racial equity. 

The Communications Subcommittee is charged with understanding and making recommendations for increasing transparency and engagement related to the diffusion of information about racial equity work on campus. By connecting with stories that honor the lived experiences of people across Duke, this subcommittee strives to foster opportunities to learn, engage and provide feedback on how we are living our Duke values and responding to institutional data in ways that make a meaningful and measurable difference in people’s lives.
