Letter to the editor

(05/12/17 8:14pm)

As Vice President for Student Affairs, I’m proud to work with many people who serve students in various ways. Our work covers health care needs, support for student programming, and response to a broad array of incidents and crisis. Among the most challenging of the things we do is to investigate and address allegations of violations of the various policies outlined in the Duke Community Standard. The staff of the Office of Student Conduct (OSC) work very hard to ensure fairness and accountability in the work they do and yet, as outlined in the series of articles recently published in the Chronicle, their work is always subject to criticism. 

Residential life at the University

(10/29/01 5:00am)

In the last few weeks, much campus attention has focused on reports in The Chronicle about the changes to Duke's residential program. Many students have expressed concern, particularly about the impact of these changes on their own housing options for the coming year. Fewer students (with much appreciated notable exceptions) have commented on the overall plan. I hope this commentary will stimulate a broader discussion of the merits of the plan and other opportunities we might consider to further promote and optimize residential experiences for all Duke undergraduates.
