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.
Neurodiversity is an inclusive term that emphasizes the abilities of people with “brain differences” that are distinct from what is considered “typical.” As a social justice movement, neurodiversity aims to recognize the strengths and unique challenges of those with autism, ADHD and other neurological differences.
We view neurodiversity as an asset to Duke University’s campus culture and academic mission.
