Diversity

"As a student-athlete at UTSA, you get to experience diversity every day and several different cultures in one place. I think that is a key part of getting a well-rounded education, and UTSA is able to provide that like no other school in the country."

Diversity

"In varietate concordia … united in diversity. I was a Latin geek in high school, and this popular motto sums up my personal belief regarding diversity at UTSA—we are connected by our differences. Also, my future goals include designing sustainable water systems for developing areas in the world. Being open to differences in language, customs and beliefs will help me when I pursue my goals."
Jessica George, College of Engineering Ambassador

Diversity

"Diversity is a flexible, evolving process that seeks to promote equity and balanced representation for all groups of people within an organization. Diversity should represent progressive social justice principles and challenge all “isms” that could diminish the human condition or experiences of community members."
Mark Giles, Director of African American Studies

Diversity

"I am honored to work at a university that values the concept of inclusion and one which is willing to 'walk the walk,' not just 'talk the talk.' Disability Services at UTSA promotes an inclusive community, and we welcome and value individuals and their differences."
