LA CROSSE, Wisconsin (WXOW) – The University of Wisconsin, La Crosse is being recognized for demonstrating an outstanding commitment to diversity and inclusion.

They were awarded the 2013 Higher Education Excellence in Diversity award from INSIGHT in Diversity magazine.  It's the oldest and largest diversity focused publication in higher education.  UW-L will be featured along with 55 other recipients in the magazine's November issue.

"For the offices and units that are a part of Campus Climate and Diversity, receiving this award has been a humbling experience. We are very grateful for the tremendous support we receive from the campus community," says Barbara Stewart, UW-L associate dean for Campus Climate and Diversity. "Winning this award is a powerful indicator of how far we have come with regard to diversity and inclusion. But also it should motivate us as a campus community to strive to make even greater progress in the future."

INSIGHT Into Diversity magazine selected UW-L based on the university's exemplary diversity and inclusion initiatives, and its ability to embrace a broad definition of diversity on campus, including gender, age, race, ethnicity, Veterans, first generation, people with disabilities and members of the LGBTQIA community.
