Equity Advocacy

Through the Equity Advocacy Initiative, UTSA will develop an overarching framework for implementing the recommendations put forth by the 21st Century Learning Environments Task Group to foster healthy and inclusive learning environments. The initiative will formally connect those efforts to the work of tactical teams on degree pathways and higher education access as a part of our fundamental commitment to diversity, inclusion and the success of UTSA students.

In support of the initiative, UTSA’s colleges and academic support divisions will develop new and enhance existing activities to advance diversity, inclusion and justice.

Initiatives in University College/Academic Success

All faculty and staff within the college and division will participate in a new, year-long inclusive excellence program that includes a common reading and monthly meetings. This theme for this inaugural year is on fostering healthy discourse and encouraging education regarding race relations. Additionally, the First-Year Experience program will incorporate “Question That Matter” programming into the AIS and WRC curriculum.
