Multicultural Resource Center

Welcome to the Doctor of Physical Therapy at Duke! Our program is committed to diversity, inclusion, and celebrating everyone that enters our program.We know that beginning in the department will be a transition for you and your family and would like to make this transition as comfortable as possible. In addition to the faculty and staff within the Doctor of Physical Therapy program, Duke also has many resources on campus that can help to support you in your new life in Durham, North Carolina.

DiversiTea Newsletter
The Duke DPT DiversiTea Newsletter was created by rising third-year Alexis M. Lacewell.The intent of the newsletter is to create a sustainable, interactive collection of work that embodies diversity, equity, and inclusion. Content for each newsletter can be submitted by students, faculty, and/or staff; submissions contain both historical and current events, and the content is multimodal, including art, music, literature, dance, etc. Each issue of the newsletter is followed by a DiversiTea & Coffee session where individuals from the program gather to discuss their favorite pieces from the issue and to have a dialogue about how the topics covered intersect with and apply to the practice of physical therapy. The purpose of the DiversiTea Newsletter is actualized when people apply what they have learned from the content and dialogue to positively influence the area of physical therapy in which they are most ingrained (i.e. admissions, community outreach, teaching, patient care, leadership & advocacy, etc.).




The Multicultural Resource Guide outlines many of the resources available on Duke’s campus. We have attempted to be as comprehensive as possible, but if there is a group or organization that you would like to connect with that you do not see listed here, please let us know – we are here to help you and your family make those connections that are important to you so that you can be as successful and as comfortable as possible at Duke.
