    • Office for Institutional Equity Diversity Toolkit
      This “Diversity Toolkit” has been compiled as part of OIE’s ongoing effort to provide resources to the whole Duke community, including all staff, faculty, and students across the University and the Health System. Each and every one of us carries responsibility for our workplace culture and educational climate at Duke. The toolkit can be used as an adjunct to the educational programs OIE already offers to departments and teams, or as a resource in developing strategies and plans to improve inclusion and engagement within a new initiative. The Diversity Toolkit provides links to publications (books, journals, reports, etc.), as well as links to electronic sources (websites, blogs, etc.).
    • Diversity Newslinks, a monthly online newsletter from the OIE
  • Office of the Dean
