Commitment to Diversity

Texas A&M University Commitment to Diversity

As a major public institution of higher education, Texas A&M University has both an extraordinary opportunity and a special responsibility to create and maintain a climate that affirms diversity of persons as well as diversity of views. Diversity is an indispensable component of academic excellence. A commitment to diversity means a commitment to the inclusion, welcome and support of individuals from all individuals from all groups, encompassing the various characteristics of persons in our community. Among these characteristics are race, ethnicity, national origin, gender, age, socioeconomic background, religion, sexual orientation and disability. As we harness the power of diversity, we will provide students, faculty and staff a university experience rich in perspectives and opportunities to learn from each other.
