Assistant Dean for Diversity and Learner Success
D'Anne Duncan, PhD, assistant dean for diversity and learner success in the Graduate Division, was recently featured in Science magazine in the first installment of a new series, “A day in the life of a scientist,” which explores the wide range of career options available to STEM-trained individuals.
D’Anne – a PhD neuroscientist – no longer performs bench research, but in her two-and-a-half years in an administrative role in the UCSF Graduate Division, first as director of diversity and outreach, and now as assistant dean, she has already made a tremendously positive impact on students and postdocs.
She spoke with Science Careers about the day-to-day realities and the joys and challenges of her position. Read the full interview in Science.
