INSIGHT Into Diversity magazine is proud to recognize Columbia University, Penn State, and Texas Tech University as its inaugural Diversity Champions.
Diversity Champions exemplify an unyielding commitment to diversity and inclusion throughout their campus communities, across academic programs, and at the highest administrative levels. Columbia University, Penn State, and Texas Tech are three of a limited number of colleges and universities across the nation to have been selected by INSIGHT Into Diversity to receive this honor.
“Columbia University, Penn State, and Texas Tech are visionary leaders among campus communities striving for diversity and inclusion,” said Lenore Pearlstein, publisher of INSIGHT Into Diversity. “As Diversity Champion schools, they exceed everyday expectations, often eclipsing even their own goals, and develop successful strategies that serve as models of excellence for other higher education institutions.”
Selected institutions rank in the top tier of past Higher Education Excellence in Diversity (HEED) Award recipients. The HEED Award is presented annually by INSIGHT Into Diversity to recognize colleges and universities that are dedicated to creating diverse and inclusive campus environments.
