Academic Council Sets Four Summer "Listening Sessions" on Campus Climate

Following a semester in which several incidents highlighted concerns about problems on campus, Academic Council Chair Don Taylor believes that faculty members need to be more involved “in creating the campus community that we all want.”

As part of this effort, Taylor is opening the council office for four “listening sessions” during the first part of the summer. The purpose, Taylor said, is to be available so that members of the campus community (students, staff and faculty) can share concerns, thoughts and ideas they have about Duke, so that this input can be considered as the Academic Council’s agenda for the 2018-19 academic year is being set.

The sessions will be held at:

  • Friday May 18, 3:30-5:30 pm
  • Wednesday May 30, Noon-2 pm
  • Friday June 8, 9-11 am
  • Thursday June 21, 3:30-5:30 pm

Location is the Academic Council Chair’s office at 203 Flowers Building on West Campus.

Taylor also said that he will be available to other members of the Duke community who are unable to attend any of the sessions.
