Diversity, Equity & Inclusion


Duke University Institutional Statement of Commitment to Diversity and Inclusion

Duke aspires to create a community built on collaboration, innovation, creativity, and belonging. Our collective success depends on the robust exchange of ideas—an exchange that is best when the rich diversity of our perspectives, backgrounds, and experiences flourishes. To achieve this exchange, it is essential that all members of the community feel secure and welcome, that the contributions of all individuals are respected, and that all voices are heard. All members of our community have a responsibility to uphold these values.

Reporting an Incident of Discrimination or Harassment

The Duke Office of Student Conduct makes available an online form for reporting incidents involving students and/or student organizations. Anyone with a Duke NetID may use this form to report an incident.

Upon receiving a report, the Office of Student Conduct staff will respond as appropriate. You will be asked to authenticate your identity before being directed to the online incident report form. If you have any problems accessing the form or authenticating your identity, please contact the Office of Student Conduct.

If you wish to file a report anonymously, you may do so through DukeReach here. Please note that Duke encourages individuals who are reporting an incident to provide identifying information. To continue to the online incident report form, click here.
