CTSI Pillars

CTSI leadership work collaboratively to advance health and health equity and to maximize our effectiveness and impact. We have organized our work and programs into mission-oriented Pillars that comprise centers, programs, and initiatives which are, in and of themselves, led by talented faculty and staff, with their own internal leadership and staffing structures.

CTSI Pillar leaders provide overarching strategic oversight and guidance to build maximum synergy among the activities of these programs. This structure facilitates:

  • sharing and building upon new ideas and opportunities

  • enhancing the CTSI mission and vision

  • extending CTSI integration with key Duke priorities

  • increasing connection and collaboration

  • improving CTSI overall operations

  • leveraging the great work already being done in CTSI

  • addressing other critical priorities

Our CTSI Pillars promote core principles of diversity, equity, and inclusion, as well as anti-biased and anti-racist practices.
