SIUE Named as Recipient of 2015 Higher Education Excellence in Diversity Award

September 15, 2015

Today, Southern Illinois University Edwardsville received the 2015 Higher Education Excellence in Diversity (HEED) award from INSIGHT Into Diversity magazine, the oldest and largest diversity-focused publication in higher education. This is the second year that SIUE has won the distinction.

As a recipient of the annual HEED Award—a national honor recognizing U.S. colleges and universities that demonstrate an outstanding commitment to diversity and inclusion— SIUE will be featured along with 91 other recipients in November 2015.

INSIGHT Into Diversity magazine selected SIUE based on its exemplary diversity and inclusion initiatives, and the ability to embrace a broad definition of diversity on campus, including gender, race, ethnicity, veterans, people with disabilities, members of the LGBT community as well as all others. For more information about the magazine, visit insightintodiversity.com.
