New programs to engage the UTSA community

April 15, 2021

A framework designed to advance a more inclusive campus, where all members of the UTSA community can engage, learn and thrive.

  • The University Ombuds and Restorative Justice services were incorporated into the Office of Inclusive Excellence. Over the course of this academic year, those entities facilitated 14 community conversations with students, faculty and staff to discuss mental health, working remotely and current events, among other topics.

  • UTSA partnered with ModernThink to deliver the university’s first comprehensive Faculty/Staff Campus Climate Survey last fall and Student Experience Survey this spring. The surveys help gather information from our Roadrunners about what is working well and where UTSA can improve. Results of both surveys will be made available to the campus community.

  • Many additional programs have been launched under this initiative over the past year. Two noteworthy examples are the Presidential Inclusive Excellence Scholarship and Tenure Track Networking Club for faculty.
