Welcome Everyone

At Duke, we believe that diversity and inclusion are essential to a thriving community. Duke is a strong, dynamic, productive and caring place because we seek and include individuals from a broad range of backgrounds, cultures, identities and experiences who are engaged with and committed to each other’s success.

Duke University Institutional Statement of Commitment to Diversity and Inclusion

Duke aspires to create a community built on collaboration, innovation, creativity, and belonging. Our collective success depends on the robust exchange of ideas—an exchange that is best when the rich diversity of our perspectives, backgrounds, and experiences flourishes. To achieve this exchange, it is essential that all members of the community feel secure and welcome, that the contributions of all individuals are respected, and that all voices are heard. All members of our community have a responsibility to uphold these values.
