Penn State has been selected as a recipient of the 2013 Higher Education Excellence in Diversity Award, in the November issue of INSIGHT into Diversity magazine.
The award recognizes American colleges and universities that have exceptional strategies and programs to help achieve diversity and inclusion across campus.
A report from Penn State said to be considered for the award, institutions had to complete a 40-question application outlining their diversity initiatives.
“Penn State has an unprecedented number of programs and initiatives in place that provide substantial opportunities for students, faculty and staff from all groups,” said Lenore Pearlstein, publisher of INSIGHT in Diversity magazine. “It is apparent that diversity and inclusion is an imperative on their campus.”
Penn State was one of three award recipients from Pennsylvania. The other two were Millersville University and Community College of Alleghany County.
