Equity and Outreach- The Equity and Outreach committee oversees policy and programming concerning marginalized students at Duke and creating just and equitable opportunities for all students. The E and O committee works closely with the big five affinity groups that include the Black Student Alliance, Mi Gente, the Asian Student Association, the Native American Student Association and the DIYA Duke South Asian Student Association. The committee seeks to create and reform policies and programs so that they are equitable for all prospective and current students at Duke. For example, we are working to provide institutional support for undocumented students. Policies involving local and national discrimination issues and initiatives designed to facilitate University engagement for marginalized communities fall under the purview of this committee.
Here are just a few of our plans for the 2017-2018 school year:
1. Undocumented Student Issues program
2. Sexual assault training for all members of the Multicultural Greek Council and the 3. National Pan-Hellenic Council
4. An invitational week for admitted LGBTQ Students
5. Facilitating conversations with low-income students and financial aid
6. And much more!
