Committees & Councils

The Duke University School of Medicine's Inclusion Council is made of faculty, staff, and trainees from all Departments within the School of Medicine. The Inclusion Council contains two parallel units. The General Body of our Inclusion Council, open to everyone within the School of Medicine, meets for education and networking opportunities. Inclusion Council delegates, made up of formal diversity and inclusion (D&I) leaders within Departments, Centers, and Institutes, meet to discuss and plan strategic initiatives within their units and the School of Medicine as a whole. Both the General Body and D&I Delegates meetings are conducted virtually via Zoom and meet every other month.
