For the fourth consecutive year, Case Western Reserve University has received the Higher Education Excellence in Diversity (HEED) Award.
Insight into Diversity, a national magazine dedicated to inclusion and diversity in the university setting, honored 92 universities with this award for their commitment to diversity through strategic initiatives.
Based on a comprehensive application, they evaluate universities on the breadth of their diversity plans, including not only race and ethnicity but also gender, age, people from the LGBT community, religion and other aspects of diversity.
CWRU continues its commitment to diversity on campus through programs such as Sustained Dialogue, Train the Champion, the Power of Diversity Lecture Series and Diversity 360 which all aim to inspire dialogue and to foster awareness about diversity-related issues on campus.
“We seek to be known as a campus that not only understands diversity and inclusion as a core value, but that demonstrates that value in the way we do business, educate this and the next generation of global citizens, and engage with the community in which we live,” said Marilyn S. Mobley, vice president for the office of inclusion, diversity & equal opportunity at CWRU. “We are making progress, but there is much more to do.”
