Southwestern Law School Receives 2014 Higher Education Excellence in Diversity Award

Southwestern Law School has received the 2014 Higher Education Excellence in Diversity (HEED) award from INSIGHT Into Diversity magazine, the oldest and largest diversity-focused publication in higher education. As a recipient of the annual HEED Award—the only national honor recognizing U.S. colleges and universities that demonstrate an outstanding commitment to diversity and inclusion—Southwestern will be featured along with 82 other recipients in the magazine’s November 2014 issue.  In each of the three years that the HEED awards have been presented, Southwestern has been one of only two law schools in the country selected for this honor.

Nydia Duenez, Esq., Assistant Director of Diversity Affairs said, "Southwestern is honored by INSIGHT Into Diversity magazine's continued recognition of our longstanding commitment to fostering diversity in legal education."

The magazine selected Southwestern based on the law school’s exemplary diversity and inclusion initiatives, and ability to embrace a broad definition of diversity on campus, including gender, race, ethnicity, veterans, people with disabilities, and members of the LGBT community.
