Background Summary

The University of Texas at Austin embraces and encourages diversity in many forms, and strives to create an inclusive community that fosters an open and supportive learning, teaching and working environment. To reinforce this important initiative, a Diversity and Inclusion Action Plan was rolled out in the Spring of 2017.

The purpose of this blueprint plan is to reflect upon how the best education can be provided for students from all backgrounds, especially those that historically have been marginalized

The University Diversity and Inclusion Action Plan (UDIAP) includes eight focus areas:

  1. University Leadership
  2. Campus Climate and Culture
  3. Students
  4. Faculty
  5. Staff
  6. Alumni and Community
  7. Pre-K–12 Partnerships and Education Pipeline
  8. Communications, Assessment, and Accountability
