A Note from the Duke Rec & P.E. Anti-Racism Commitment Group

In the summer of 2020, Duke Recreation and Physical Education formed the Anti-Racism Commitment Group in response to ongoing racial injustice and police brutality. The group’s mission is to build awareness and leadership around anti-racism by generating transformative conversations, tangible changes, and experiences by assessment, intentional actions, and holding our community accountable. Currently, we are in the process of evaluating our department’s staff culture, policies, and practices. We plan to utilize our findings to identify areas of growth and positive change for our staff and the communities we serve. We welcome you to contact us by emailing Executive Director Felicia Tittle if you are interested in learning more, providing feedback, or sharing personal experiences that will help us in our work.
