UT Austin's Commitment on Diversity

As The University of Texas at Austin strives to meet its mission of unlocking potential and preparing future leaders of the state, it embraces diversity in many forms. The university is dedicated to attracting highly-qualified students, faculty and staff with a wide range of backgrounds, ideas and viewpoints. This includes those from all races and ethnicities; first-generation college students; women; and others who have been historically underrepresented on campus.

As a university with a past history of denying equitable access to qualified students, UT recognizes the profound benefits of creating an inclusive environment in which students can learn from one another. All students are better prepared to succeed in an increasingly diverse state and interconnected society when they receive the educational benefits of learning on a diverse campus.

CREED Latina/o Faculty Report

Report on the following issues related to Latina/o faculty: numbers/ compensation, chairs/professorships, leadership, teaching awards, service/community engagement, graduate students and Hispanic-serving institution status.



Joining a community provides an opportunity for meaningful relating and interaction with fellow faculty and staff members, and opens up dialogue with students around topics addressing diversity, inclusion, and equity. How this translates to new understandings and potential for change in the university-wide community is a responsibility we all share.
