Duke Divinity School is committed to advancing Duke’s shared values of respect, trust, inclusion, discovery, and excellence. We work closely with the Office for Institutional Equity (OIE) and the Office of Audit, Risk, and Compliance (OARC) to support students, faculty, and staff and to respond to concerns of discrimination, harassment, and/or related misconduct at Duke. 

Discrimination, Harassment, and/or Sexual Misconduct

Duke prohibits discrimination and harassment based on age, color, disability, gender, gender expression, gender identity, genetic information, national origin, race, religion, sex, sexual orientation, or veteran status in its employment practices or educational programs and activities.
