Open to UTSA students, faculty, staff and friends, the event is 4-8 p.m., Tuesday, Nov. 13 at Sombrilla Plaza on the 1604 Campus. The rain site is the Recreation Center.

The Nov. 13 fair is a celebration of all of the diversity represented throughout the UTSA community, such as race, ethnicity, culture, age, disability, gender, sexual orientation, national origin, political affiliation, geography, sports, religion, employment and academic departments -- any difference that makes a difference.
UTSA Diversity Month is coordinated by the Center for Inclusion and Community Engagement, part of the Office of Student Affairs. For more information, call (210) 458-4770.
