A brief description of the diversity, equity, and/or inclusion recognition:

As highlighted in our Points of Distinction, PRE-2, AASHE awarded Catawba College its inaugural and international Racial Equity and Sustainability Collaborations award for the work of the Equity, Diversity, Justice, and Inclusion (EDJI) Task Force led by co-chairs Dr. Mercedes Quesada-Embid and Dr. ChaMarra Saner.

According to AASHE's website:

"This award honors higher education institutions for successfully integrating racial equity and social justice with sustainability. It seeks to foster and highlight collaborations between on-campus entities (e.g., departments focused on sustainability and diversity, equity and inclusion), as well as between the institution and the community, that advance racial equity and social justice. One award is given annually."
