Mi Gente, Duke’s Latino Student Association, proudly endorses David Robertson for Young Trustee. Of all three candidates, we believe that Robertson has demonstrated the greatest commitment to equity and diversity throughout his time at Duke. Robertson’s involvement in the 1G Network, Common Ground Retreat, and FAC Board highlights his dedication to the Duke student community. Robertson has worked closely with the Center for Multicultural Affairs, the Center for Sexual and Gender Diversity, the Mary Lou Williams Center for Black Culture, the Women’s Center, CAPS and the Wellness Center- all centers that Mi Gente supports and has established relationships with. Robertson understands the concerns of Mi Gente, such as the need for safe and visible spaces on campus for students to openly discuss their identities in a supportive environment. Understanding the issues students face, Robertson is the perfect liaison between Duke students and the Board of Trustees. Robertson’s previous interactions with the Board of Trustees and administrators provide him with the experience needed to effectively voice the concerns of the student body. We are confident that Robertson will actively and productively improve the Duke community as Young Trustee.
