|The Alamo Colleges has been recognized for its commitment to diversity with the 2015 Higher Education Excellence in Diversity (HEED) Award from INSIGHT Into Diversity magazine.|
The Alamo Colleges is one of only six higher education institutions in Texas selected to receive the 2015 Higher Education Excellence in Diversity (HEED) Award from INSIGHT Into Diversity magazine, the oldest and largest diversity-focused publication in higher education. 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 - Alamo Colleges will be featured, along with 91 other recipients, in the November 2015 issue of INSIGHT Into Diversity magazine.
"The HEED Award process consists of a comprehensive and rigorous application that includes questions relating to the recruitment and retention of students and employees - and best practices for both - continued leadership support for diversity, and other aspects of campus diversity and inclusion. Our standards are high, and we look for institutions where diversity and inclusion are woven into the work being accomplished every day across a campus," said Lenore Pearlstein, publisher of INSIGHT Into Diversity magazine.
