2022 HEED Award Application

Welcome to the 2022 INSIGHT Into Diversity Higher Education Excellence in Diversity (HEED) Award application. The INSIGHT Into Diversity HEED Award is a measure of an institution's commitment, programs, initiatives, goals, and accomplishments as they relate to diversity, equity, and inclusion across your campus. Each application is reviewed by the INSIGHT Into Diversity HEED Award committee and receives two scores, one is embedded in the application itself, the second computed by committee members' input after a comprehensive review. Each institution that meets a minimum total score as set forth by the committee will be named a 2022 INSIGHT Into Diversity HEED Award recipient. 

  • Only U.S. accredited institutions of higher education may apply for the HEED Award.  No individual schools or colleges may apply (i.e. the College of Business, the College of Education), only the institution as a whole.
  • Review your application in its entirety before submitting.  Each applicant is responsible for missing or incorrect information and we will not accept any corrections once your application is submitted.
  • We offer you the opportunity to submit additional information on every question via a "comment box". We highly recommend using these boxes to offer any additional details of programs or efforts, clarifications, explanations, descriptions, or insight that you feel will be helpful in our review. DO NOT include website links in your application.
  • Being a previous HEED Award winner does not guarantee being a current HEED Award winner. Ensure that your application contains all relevant information you would like us to consider each and every year.
  • Remember to print/save your application before submitting. 

This application is comprehensive and may necessitate reaching out to other offices on your campus for information and data. You can save your responses beginning on the second page of this application by entering your email address at the bottom of the page.  You will then receive a link that will return you to your partially completed application at any time.

The deadline to submit your INSIGHT Into Diversity 2022 HEED Award application is June 30.  The application process opens at the beginning of March each year, giving every applicant four months to gather the information and data.  

Each INSIGHT Into Diversity HEED Award recipient may request an award certificate, will receive a high-resolution 2022 HEED Award logo, and have the opportunity to be recognized in the annual INSIGHT Into Diversity HEED Award issue, which is published in October. If you have any questions about the HEED Award or this application, please contact Lenore Pearlstein at
