Race is a focal point at GRID, along with other descent-related population labels such as ethnicity, ancestry, and geographic origin. The Duke Center for Truth, Racial Healing & Transformation (Duke TRHT Center) is working towards becoming a formidable and influential vehicle for facilitating transformation at Duke, in Durham, and beyond. Critical to the success and sustainability of this university-wide effort is the visible and participatory commitment of campus and community leaders.

April 4, 2024: DISM/PARISS Fellows
The Duke Initiative on Survey Methodology (DISM) is a space where researchers can exchange ideas about survey research and learn about survey research methods. Welcoming Duke affiliates from across academic and professional fields, DISM has many resources available to support research including training in survey research methods, consulting for individual projects, and funding opportunities. The PARISS Fellowship offers Duke graduate students financial support (tuition + stipend) and provides various training and professional development opportunities: to present original research, to develop collaborations with other researchers within SSRI, to advise students conducting independent research, and to become part of a shared intellectual community of Fellows, graduate students, and faculty from across the various SSRI affiliated programs.
