Posted In: Arizona Campus, Awards, Missouri Campus, University Headlines

A.T. Still University (ATSU) received the 2018 Health Professions Higher Education Excellence in Diversity (HEED) Award from INSIGHT Into Diversity magazine, the oldest and largest diversity-focused publication in higher education.

“The ATSU community is honored to receive this award for two consecutive years,” said ATSU Associate Vice President for Diversity & Inclusion, Clinton Normore. “This esteemed award affirms our continued commitment to achieving a culturally proficient University community and the value we place on diversity and inclusion throughout our campus and community relationships.”

ATSU will be featured, along with 34 other recipients, in the December 2018 issue of INSIGHT into Diversity magazine. ATSU is the first health professions University to be named a HEED Award recipient for consecutive years. The award process consists of a comprehensive, rigorous application that includes questions relating to the recruitment and retention of students and employees – and best practices for both – continued leadership support for diversity, and other aspects of campus diversity and inclusion.

“ATSU’s faculty, staff, and students are honored to receive this award for the second year.” said ATSU President Craig Phelps, DO, ’84. “Mr. Normore and team deserve recognition for advancing the University to become more culturally proficient, diverse, and inclusive”

INSIGHT into Diversity magazine selected ATSU for its deep commitment to an educational and collaborative environment embracing cultural proficiency. Today, ATSU supports students who learn and serve in diverse, underserved, urban, and rural communities across America.

“We take a detailed approach to reviewing each application in deciding who will be named a Health Professions HEED Award recipient.” said Lenore Pearlstein, publisher of INSIGHT Into Diversity magazine.  “Our standards are high, and we look for schools where diversity and inclusion are woven into the work being accomplished every day across their campus.”
