The ever-changing population on Duke’s campus comes with both great benefits for a deeper understanding of an increasingly diverse community, and inevitable strains as these changes push at the boundaries of our existing spaces.
Today, we are happy to announce forward movement, with the designation of areas in the Bryan Center specifically for our Asian-American and Latinx student communities, to be ready for occupancy in the Fall. In addition, two new Program Coordinators and additional graduate student staff will be hired to work with these groups.
Both of these spaces and the new staff will be part of the expanding Center for Multicultural Affairs, and are a major step toward meeting the needs of our increasingly diverse Duke community. We look forward to working with students to explore and identify further ways to support both within group and cross group needs and opportunities.
These changes will require the relocation of the Center for Leadership Development and Social Action and the Office of Fraternity & Sorority Life, as well as other campus units. Overall, our goal is to provide comparable spaces to all affected offices, and we thank the teams who will be moving for both their understanding and their willingness to be part of a solution. Further details on those changes will follow.
