UMass Lowell’s efforts to create a diverse and inclusive campus were recently honored with a Higher Education Excellence in Diversity Award from INSIGHT Into Diversity magazine – for the second year in a row. The HEED Awards recognize schools with an outstanding commitment to diversity of race, nationality and religion and inclusion of veterans, people with disabilities and the LGBTQ community, among others.
Chancellor Jacquie Moloney also received a Giving Back Award from INSIGHT Into Diversity magazine earlier this year. The award recognized her leadership in creating a more diverse campus, including making global engagement and inclusivity one of the five pillars of the university’s 2020 Strategic Plan, and her efforts to involve faculty and students in the community.
As part of our transition to Division I athletics, our Institutional Performance Plan (pdf) includes gender/diversity and student-athlete well-being.
