New Duke Podcast: Bridging the Gap
"Bridging the Gap" aims to speak with Duke’s diverse student body and discuss their experiences navigating identity, discrimination, tokenism, and more at a predominantly white institution. Duke students, staff, faculty, and alumni are invited to submit their stories.
This year Duke Bridge, a student group and online platform, is partnering with The Chronicle to create “Bridging the Gap,” a podcast on the experiences of Duke’s diverse students of color.
“The Bridge is an online platform for all women of color to share their personal narrative through different forms of creative expression. This online community bridges women of color through cross-cultural and cross-campus collaborations that celebrates their identities and allows them to reclaim agency over their narrative through creative expression.”—About the Bridge
This is a commentary on race, gender, and marginalization at Duke and beyond. “Bridging the Gap” aims to speak with Duke’s diverse student body and discuss their experiences navigating identity, discrimination, tokenism, and more at a predominantly white institution.
Duke students, faculty, staff, and alumni are invited to share your stories by participating in this podcast.
“Bridging the Gap” is currently seeking stories from individuals with experience in:

- Diversity, Discomfort, and Discrimination: Sharing your experience dealing with racial discrimination, prejudices, micro-macro aggressions, or any other such experiences
- The LGBTQ+ Experience at Duke: How do queer individuals experience life, adversity, and discrimination on campus; how can the university do better to include voices of students of diverse sexual orientation
- Living Latinx: Open discussion
