The College of Dental Medicine Receives National Honor for Diversity Efforts

The College of Dental Medicine was selected as a recipient of the 2018 INSIGHT Into Diversity Health Professions HEED Awards. The honor recognizes the school’s work creating a diverse, inclusive environment. This was the first year the award was given in the health professions category.

CDM will be among the 35 winners featured in the December 2018 issue of INSIGHT Into Diversity, the nation’s largest publication focused on diversity in higher education. The HEED Award is the only national recognition honoring colleges and universities that show an outstanding commitment to diversity and inclusion across their campuses.

Although this is the first time a health sciences-focused award is presented, CDM has been recognized with HEED awards annually since 2014 in the general higher education category.
