We are committed to supporting the creation of equitable and inclusive spaces for students, faculty, and staff, with a focus on removing structural barriers and fostering an atmosphere in which every member of the campus community matters and belongs. We work to advance access, accountability, an inclusive campus climate, and equity while combating racism, bias, and discrimination.

From the Vice Chancellor for Diversity and Engagement
As UT’s chief diversity and engagement officer, my unwavering commitment is to help create an environment where everyone can bring their authentic self and feel valued and respected. My team and I serve as a catalyst, leveraging resources and best practices across campus in the areas of climate, engagement and outreach, education and professional development, compliance, and assessment. We partner with individuals and organizations throughout UT, across the state and region, nationally, and globally to promote a culture of inclusive excellence.
