Title Body
Memo from the Dean – 11/17/2015 – Follow Up from Duke Community Conversation

As a key driver for new ideas and creativity, diversity is at the very core of a liberal arts education—and at the core of our institutional values. To be a truly educated person, we believe you should embrace and practice an appreciation for different disciplines, thought processes, modes of expression, and histories. As we dedicate ourselves each day to providing such an education, we must also be dedicated to ensuring inclusion for every member of our community. We equally recognize intellectual freedom and the courage to hold, articulate and defend and debate ideas, whether popular or not, as an essential value of the university.
