Our History
Parents@Duke, which consists of a wide cross section of Duke University staff and faculty, emerged in the spring of 2002.  We united as a response to inadequate and inequitable family-related policies at Duke and as a means of improving the general climate on campus for people with family responsibilities.  We see our work as an extension of the work begun at Duke during the 1970s, which resulted in the current maternity leave policy described in the Faculty Handbook.  We also see our work as intersecting with the increasingly visible efforts of people across the nation to create workplaces that foster and value healthy relationships between work and family.
