Tuesdays in the Orchard, or TITO for short, is a community-building initiative born from the 2021-2022 DEI Student Advisory Committee. In Spring 2022, the Nicholas School Student Council (NSSC) collaborated with more than 13 student groups to build community through the Tuesdays in the Orchard event series. Organizers included the Nic School Energy Club (NSEC), Duke Sustainability Board (DSB), Student Association for Geospatial Analysis (SAGA), Coding for the Environment, Graduate and Professional Student Government (GPSG), Diverse and Inclusive Community for the Environment (DICE), Duke Environmental Justice Network (DEJN), Society of American Foresters (SAF), the Ocean Policy Working Group (OPWG), Net Impact, Duke Society for Ecological Restoration (DSER), the Nic Queer Network (NQN), NicNats, Duke Water Network (DWN), and Duke Conservation Society (DCS). Special thanks to Madeline Bowers, Beste Elverdi, Emily Wood, Erin Keleske and countless others for their efforts to bring this initiative to life!
