Here at The University of Texas at Austin, we embrace and encourage diversity in many forms, 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, and we support a free exchange of ideas alongside thoughtful consideration of our differences. The UT Austin Division of Diversity and Community Engagement (DDCE) offers more than 40 programs and initiatives that support this vision, strengthening diversity on campus and in communities across the state, all while helping to shape the future leaders of Texas and the world beyond.
For 25 years, the Multicultural Engagement Center has developed student leaders and offered a home away from home for students of color.
The Office for Inclusion and Equity provides leadership on matters related to equity, diversity, respect and professionalism for all in the community.
The thematic faculty initiative is a partnership between DDCE and colleges and schools to foster a robust intellectual community by identifying gaps in scholarship and recruiting and hiring faculty whose research helps to close those gaps.
