The McDaniel College Alumni Association has been nationally recognized as an Alumni Association Inclusive Excellence Award winner by Insight Into Diversity magazine, the largest and oldest diversity and inclusion publication in higher education.

McDaniel’s Alumni Association is featured with 31 other recipients in the magazine’s June 2024 issue.

McDaniel is the only higher education institution in Maryland to receive an Alumni Award, which honors alumni association’s programs, culture, and initiatives that encourage and support diversity, inclusion, and a sense of belonging for all alumni, regardless of racial or ethnic background, sexual or gender identity, religion, socio-economic status, world view, and more.

“We know that alumni associations are not always recognized for their dedication to diversity, inclusion, and belonging,” says Lenore Pearlstein, owner and publisher of Insight Into Diversity magazine. “We are proud to honor these college and university alumni associations as role models for other institutions of higher education.”

Insight Into Diversity magazine selected the McDaniel College Alumni Association for this award due to the work of the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Committee of the Alumni Council to increase the number of BIPOC and underrepresented alumni who are actively involved with the college. The committee is chaired by 2024 Trustee Alumni Award recipient James A. Felton III ’95, M.S. ’98.

“We are proud of the meaningful progress made by the DEI Committee of McDaniel College’s Alumni Council to ensure that all alumni feel supported, engaged, and connected,” said McDaniel President Julia Jasken
