Diverse: Issues in Higher Education Vital Supporter Return to 15 Who Helped Excelencia Reach 15 Main Page Excelencia honors and awards its Heart to the leadership of Diverse: Issues in Higher Education for the important role it plays as advocate and messenger for diversity in higher education overall, and for its support of Excelencia and Latino student success, in particular. In addition to providing continuous, important news coverage of Excelencia’s work and progress, this publication and digital communications firm stepped up to provide financial support as a sponsor over the last 10 years for our signature Examples of Excelencia initiative and our annual Accelerating Latino Student Success (ALASS) Institute. They continue to work with us to engage our shared community committed to serving students of color. In addition to advertising and reporting, they always have a presence at our annual fall events, invited our leadership to serve as speakers at their conferences, and even linked their John Hope Franklin Award presentation with our Celebración de Excelencia another year. For being a true partner in raising awareness and attention to issues important to Latino student success at American institutions, Excelencia acknowledges Diverse: Issues in Higher Education for their contributions and support.
