On Dec. 5, the University of Phoenix received the Colleges and Universities Committed to Diversity Award for the second year in a row.
The award commended the school on its efforts to promote higher education opportunities for minority students, in addition to welcoming diversity and decreasing social stigmas that exist throughout America.
The school has historically been a proponent of offering fair standards to minority and often-ignored populations, offering access to these groups well above the national averages. Nearly 50 percent of the students are from ethnic minorities and over 30 percent of the instructors at the school are as well. The University of Phoenix also promotes the ability of working students to earn a degree by offering online courses.
In addition to the school receiving the award, Constance St. Germain, the dean of the Colleges of Humanities and Sciences, Social Science, and Security and Criminal Justice was also recognized for her efforts in the Office of Multicultural Affairs & Diversity at University of Phoenix.
"It’s essential to further the conversation on how to cultivate an environment of inclusion and diversity that not only makes us stronger as individuals, but also strengthens the institution and our community as a whole,” St. Germain said.
