REAC Subcommittee: Education


Duke consistently develops and provides deep and broad educational engagements that foster anti-racist attitudes and behaviors and enable every person affiliated with Duke to understand and grow in their responsibility to advance racial equity.

The Education Subcommittee is charged with examining how the institution supports units and departments to improve lived experiences, understanding, and overall culture through learning and skill development for members of the Duke community. This subcommittee also considers all aspects of educational engagement, development, and resourcing related to racial equity in their purview, and is beginning their work with auditing the various educational opportunities across Duke and identifying existing gaps and points of synergy.
