Clark Receives Higher Education Excellence in Diversity Award
Tuesday, September 18, 2018
The Higher Education Excellence in Diversity (HEED) is the only national award that recognizes colleges and universities for outstanding diversity and inclusion efforts on their campuses.
“It is an honor to be recognized nationally for the great work we are doing on our campus,” said Sheree M. Marlowe Ohen, chief officer for diversity and inclusion.
Diversity at Clark
Clark’s application listed the numerous programs and initiatives offered through the Office of Diversity and Inclusion that have been created to help celebrate the talents, perspectives, and contributions of the diverse students, faculty, and staff on campus.
The Diversity and Inclusion Certificate Program enables participants to engage in critical dialogue and in-depth examination of diversity, difference, power, privilege, and the President’s Diversity Advisory Council (PDAC) advises campus leaders and makes recommendations about best practices in creating a diverse and inclusive campus community.
Clark’s ODI Co-funding Program helps support activities, events, research, and recruitment efforts, and the newly created D’Army Bailey Diversity Fund provides aid to talented students from historically underrepresented backgrounds to finance their education at Clark.
The HEED Award measures an institution’s level of achievement and intensity of commitment in regard to broadening diversity and inclusion on campus through initiatives, programs, and outreach; student recruitment, retention, and completion; and hiring practices for faculty and staff.
Ninety-six campuses from across the U.S. and Canada were selected to receive the award this year.
