Duke University School of Medicine’s Commitment to Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion
At the Duke University School of Medicine, we believe that equity, diversity, and inclusion are core elements of institutional excellence.
We are committed to developing and implementing a culture of inclusion in which faculty, staff, and students from underrepresented backgrounds experience a genuine sense of value, empowerment, and belonging.
To create a more nurturing environment for everyone at the Duke University School of Medicine, we encourage our faculty, staff, and students to be engaged in equity, diversity, and inclusion (EDI) efforts.
