INSIGHT Into Diversity magazine is pleased to announce the 109 institutions of higher education selected as recipients of the 2023 Higher Education Excellence in Diversity (HEED) Award — including those in the community college and law school categories — and the 62 winners of the 2023 Health Professions HEED Award.
The HEED Awards and the Health Professions HEED Awards are the only national honors recognizing U.S. colleges and universities that demonstrate an outstanding commitment to creating a diverse and inclusive campus environment. The honorees will be featured in the November/December 2023 issue of INSIGHT Into Diversity, the nation’s largest and oldest publication dedicated to DEI (diversity, equity, and inclusion) in higher education.
“The HEED Award selection process is rigorous, assessing the recruitment and retention of students and faculty, pathway programs, community partnerships, leadership support for DEI initiatives, and a comprehensive list of other considerations,” said Lenore Pearlstein, publisher. “The winning institutions consistently demonstrate best practices and set the standards for other colleges and universities.”
The Health Professions HEED Award recognizes U.S. medical, dental, pharmacy, osteopathic, nursing, veterinary, allied health, and other health schools and centers that exhibit excellence in DEI initiatives and strategies.
“Our Health Professions HEED Award recipients demonstrate extraordinary resolve in working to build a more equitable, inclusive, and diverse campus environment,” says Pearlstein. “They also show significant commitment to addressing the gaps in health care disparities through a wide range of community outreach initiatives and by building a culturally competent future workforce.”
