Department of Cell Biology Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee

The Cell Biology Department celebrates diversity and strives to maintain an atmosphere of inclusion for everyone. We welcome multiple approaches and points of view which provide a bridge to excellence in education and research. We are committed to supporting all members of our Department regardless of ethnicity, race, gender identity, or sexual orientation. Duke University has been named one of the “Best Employers for Diversity” in 2020, the second consecutive year. Duke placed 8 out of 500 companies in the annual ranking, which Forbes released on January 21. Duke ranked first for companies headquartered in North Carolina and in the education industry.
