As a Hispanic serving institution, UTSA embraces and values diversity among all of its students, faculty and staff. In fact, inclusiveness is one of the university’s core values—not only because we believe that everyone deserves access to high-quality education, but because we also recognize that our community of scholars is made stronger and richer by those who bring a different perspective to our classrooms, laboratories and offices. For those reasons, I am proud to support the important work and efforts by Provost John Frederick, Associate Provost Lisa Firmin and the entire Diversity Advisory Board to promote diversity across our campuses at UTSA.
