The University of Texas at San Antonio strives to improve the recruitment of diverse faculty and staff as this positively impacts student performance and increases their sense of belonging. Promoting diversity within the faculty and staff enables students from different backgrounds to identify with professors and staff, experience diverse curriculum and programs, and enhance their trust in the University community.

The Office of Inclusive Excellence engages in a number of strategies designed to attract excellent faculty and staff to UTSA. These strategies focus on: equity in the search process, developing inclusive position announcements, diversifying the applicant pool, and implementing nationally recognized recruitment best practices.


The overarching recruitment goal is: “not to recruit diverse faculty and staff who are excellent”………but to: “hire excellent faculty and staff who are diverse.”
