Overdahl’s Guide Helps All Duke Graduate Students

Kirsten Overdahl, PhD candidate

The Graduate School just launched a new interactive guide to help students better understand the options, resources, and processes for addressing concerns of harassment, discrimination, and related problems.  This resource is based on the amazing work that ITEHP student, Kirsten Overdahl, completed in Summer 2020, where she developed an interactive guide to help Nicholas School students better understand the options and processes for reporting harassment, discrimination, and other misconducts.  The end product was a result of extensive collaboration between Overdahl; The Graduate School; the Office for Institutional Equity; Duke Student Affairs; Office of Counsel; and a number of graduate students, faculty, and staff.
