Our Mission

Established in 1991 by President H. Keith H. Brodie, the Duke LGBT Task Force makes ongoing assessments of attitudes and conditions throughout the University regarding gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender persons and issues.

The LGBT Task Force also makes recommendations for changes and seeks implementation of these recommendations on issues such as (1) the University-wide environment for gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender students, staff, and faculty; (2) appropriate supportive services for such students, staff, and faculty; (3) educational programs for the entire University community; (4) other matters affecting the lives of gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender community members at Duke.

For more information about the Duke LGBT Task Force, please contact cochairs Sara-Jane Raines (sarajane.raines@duke.edu) and Damon Seils (damon.seils@duke.edu).
