- U.S. Supreme Court Rulings.
The Office for Institutional Equity plays a leadership role in fostering diversity, equity and inclusion within the Duke environment. Like other Americans, we have been paying close attention to the momentous decisions by the U.S. Supreme Court this week. There has perhaps never been a week in recent American history when four “civil rights” cases have been announced in the same week. We are encouraged by the rulings that move us toward a more equitable and inclusive society, recognizing the freedom and liberties that should be enjoyed by all. At the same time, there is still work to be done to insure full access and participation by the citizenry of the United States. As an office, we are committed to our continued work towards an academic community that encourages excellence through inclusion and honors the value of each community member. We encourage all members of our community to continue to be mindful of opportunities to engage the fullest range of ideas, viewpoints and perspectives across our campus and health system.
