Today, Alliant International University received the 2013 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—Alliant will be featured along with 55 other recipients in Insight Into Diversity magazine’s November 2013 issue. This is Alliant’s second year being named as a HEED Award recipient.
“The HEED award serves as a way to honor those institutions of higher education that recognize the importance of diversity and inclusion as part of their everyday campus culture,” said Lenore Pearlstein, publisher of INSIGHT Into Diversity magazine.
Insight Into Diversity magazine selected Alliant based on its exemplary diversity and inclusion initiatives, and ability to embrace a broad definition of diversity on our campus, including gender, race, ethnicity, veterans, people with disabilities, and members of the LGBT community.
