Climate Handbook

The Department of Psychology & Neuroscience supports a climate that facilitates personal and career growth welcomes and includes all backgrounds and viewpoints, and supports its community. We share Duke's values of respect, trust, diversity, discovery, and excellence. We also recognize that concrete steps are needed to implement those values within our community. 

Through our climate statement, we outline our shared commitments as P&N faculty, staff, and students to supporting one another professionally and with respect. We are collectively committed to fostering a community where all members can thrive by:

  • Modeling positive behaviors
  • Communicating concerns to others
  • Taking steps to improve our practices
  • Signaling respect for others through mindfulness of our language and behaviors.

Our shared values guide our interactions with the members of our community, all activities within our laboratories and classrooms, and all times wherein we represent Duke and/or P&N in other settings.

Please note that our Climate Handbook remains a "living document" that we will continue to update and revise each year

We affirm the values expressed by the 2022-2023 P&N Climate Handbook
