Insight Into Diversity magazine, the oldest and largest diversity publication and website in higher education, has recognized the University of Alabama at Birmingham as a 2020 Higher Education Excellence in Diversity Award recipient and a 2020 Diversity Champion.
The HEED Award recognizes colleges and universities that demonstrate an outstanding commitment to diversity and inclusion throughout their campuses. UAB, the only institution in Alabama to be recognized with the annual award, will be featured among other recipients in the November 2020 issue of Insight Into Diversity magazine. This is the fourth year UAB has been named a HEED Award recipient.
“UAB is honored to be recognized for a fourth HEED Award for our longtime commitment to diversity and inclusion,” said UAB President Ray Watts. “This award is a tribute to the outstanding efforts of our Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, which continues offering innovative and impactful programming even amid a global pandemic, and to productive partnerships that span our campus, community and state. UAB is proud to remain a national leader in promoting a supportive and respectful campus culture, as well as greater opportunity for underrepresented and first-generation students.”
