   We Keep You Informed  

CTSI is committed to combatting all forms of racism and bias and to ensuring equity in our policies and practices. This link provides some resources you may wish to use in your reflections on the sources of racial bias as it relates to our engagement at Duke as well as in our broader social contexts.

The Community of Scholars stands in solidarity against racist sentiments, actions and policies that propagate injustices throughout our nation. We join many voices at Duke condemning the ongoing acts of violence, discrimination and inequity against Black people. The Community of Scholars supports deeply honest dialogue and reflection, as well as behaviors and actions leading to accountability and meaningful change.​
