IDEA committee

Duke Biology Department’s Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, and Anti-Racism (IDEA) Graduate Committee was created by Duke BioGrads for Duke BioGrads. Previously known as the Biology Diversity and Inclusion and/or DEI committee, this committee aims to support the BioGrad community by hosting events and advocating for policies that promote equity and reduce bias.

The IDEA Graduate Committee has a standalone website that compiles their work and resources, as well as outlining their mission statement and structure. Their website can be found at
