Neurodiversity at Duke

Neurodiversity Connections was founded in 2016 by faculty, students, staff, and administrators who believe that the Duke community is enriched by the many contributions of neurodivergent students.  Our goal is to increase awareness and promote inclusion of neurodiversity in all campus spaces. Please browse this website for resources and upcoming events focused on neurodiversity.

Defining Neurodiversity

Neurodiversity recognizes the diversity of human minds and the inherent worth of all individuals.  As a social justice movement, the neurodiversity movement aims to celebrate the strengths and advocate for the needs of those with autism, ADHD, and other neurological differences.

 We view neurodiversity as an asset to Duke University’s campus culture and academic mission.
