Lansing: Parking & construction

Major underground construction has begun on Grand Ave just outside the entrance of Student Lot 2. The construction will be on-going for the next few weeks and it will be very difficult to enter and exit Student Lot 2 from Grand Ave. Because of this, we have opened an additional entrance to the lot along Washtenaw St. Washtenaw is a two-way street that can be accessed from both Grand Ave. and Washington. The entrance of the lot is marked with a ‘Davenport Students Only’ sign.
Please contact Security Services at 517-899-4424 or stop into the office with any questions.

DU receives Insight Into Diversity 2014 Higher Education Excellence in Diversity (HEED) Award

Davenport University has received the 2014 Higher Education Excellence in Diversity (HEED) Award from INSIGHT Into Diversity magazine, the oldest and largest diversity-focused publication in higher education. This marks the third consecutive year Davenport has been honored with the HEED Award, which recognizes U.S. colleges and universities that demonstrate an outstanding commitment to diversity and inclusion.  DU will be featured along with 82 other recipients in INSIGHT Into Diversity’s November 2014 issue.

“Davenport University’s selection was based on its exemplary diversity and inclusion initiatives, and its ability to embrace a broad definition of diversity at its 11 campuses across Michigan, including gender, race, ethnicity, veterans, people with disabilities, members of the LGBT community, and others,” said Rhae-Ann Booker, Executive Director of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion for Davenport University.

“We hope the HEED award serves as a way to honor those institutions of higher education that recognize the importance of diversity and inclusion as part of their everyday campus culture,” said Lenore Pearlstein, publisher of INSIGHT Into Diversity magazine.
