Diversity is an indispensable part of excellence. We have defended this principle all the way to the Supreme Court, and American higher education has benefitted.
At UT Austin, we embrace and encourage diversity, striving to create an inclusive community that fosters an open and supportive learning, teaching, and working environment. Our strength as a university draws from our wide range of perspectives and experiences. We share a commitment to free speech and expression, coupled with equal treatment of all members of our campus community.
The university’s Division of Diversity and Community Engagement (DDCE) offers more than 40 programs and initiatives that support this vision. Additionally, in the spring of 2017, the University Diversity and Inclusion Action Plan (UDIAP) was created to serve as a blueprint for optimal future diversity and inclusion efforts.
At UT Austin, you are not just welcome – you are critical. Join us.
