“This is a moment of transformation for Duke, when we can see more clearly than ever before how we might lead in the century to come. It’s also a moment of extraordinary continuity, as the seeds of our current and future excellence that were planted and cultivated throughout our university’s first hundred years come into full bloom.”
— Vincent E. Price, Duke University President
Annual Address to the Faculty, March 17, 2022
As we look ahead to our second century, our strategic vision is an invitation for all of us—faculty, students, staff, alumni, and friends of the university—to think together about our turn to the future, about how we can remain true to the Duke we have always been while charting our course toward the Duke we are destined to become.
Racial Equity at Duke
We are committed today and throughout the future of Duke to addressing systemic racism on our campus and setting an example for our nation and the world. I believe that at Duke we have both the opportunity and responsibility to produce real and lasting change in our community and beyond.
