UGA receives national higher education diversity award

Athens, Ga. – The University of Georgia’s commitment to diversity and inclusive excellence has earned national recognition for the ninth consecutive year. 

INSIGHT Into Diversity’s Higher Education Excellence in Diversity Award is the only national honor recognizing colleges and universities that demonstrate significant efforts and success in the area of diversity and inclusion. UGA has earned this national honor every year since 2014. 

“The University of Georgia greatly appreciates this national recognition of our wide-ranging investments in diversity and inclusive excellence,” said President Jere W. Morehead. “While there is more work ahead, it is exciting to see the gains we are making, and I look forward to the additional progress that will be made in this critical area in the coming year.” 

Anchored by a Diversity and Inclusive Excellence Plan adopted in 2021, UGA’s efforts to foster diversity and inclusion include successful programs that have been in place for years as well as new initiatives.
