Caption Montana State University recently received a 2014 Higher Education Excellence in Diversity, or HEED, award, a national honor that recognizes the university’s commitment to diversity and inclusion. Universities that were selected for the award underwent a comprehensive review. Among other measures, MSU’s application highlighted a number of its efforts to improve graduation rates among students from underrepresented groups. One such effort is the Caring for Our Own program, or CO-OP, which supports Native American and Alaska Native students pursuing nursing degrees at MSU. MSU photo by Kelly Gorham.
