A brief description of the campus climate assessment(s) :

The U.S. News and World Report, the American Association of State Colleges and Universities, and the Hispanic Outlook Magazine for Higher Learning have recognized UT Arlington as a national diversity leader. The University provides an educational setting for more than 33,000 students of all backgrounds. As a rapidly growing and ever-changing institution, we must ensure that our programs, policies, and culture continue to support and engage students. he Diversity Training Institute trains staff to develop diversity education programs.
 The University supports research that delves into historically underserved, understudied, and under-represented communities.
 The new Center for African American Studies utilizes research methods from several disciplines to enable students to enhance their understanding of African Americans’ unique social circumstances and heritage and to better understand the politics, culture, and history of the nation as a whole.
Several committees and programs help promote campus diversity, including the Committee on the Status of Women and Minorities, the Committee on Diversity and Inclusion, and the Office of Multicultural Affairs. Events such as International Week, Women’s History Month, Asian Heritage Month and others celebrate different cultures. Visit www.uta.edu/diversity and www.uta.edu/multicultural to learn more.
