Reaffirmation of Commitment to Equal Employment Opportunity, Access and Affirmative Action

December 6, 2017 
Dear A&M-San Antonio Community:

Texas A&M University-San Antonio (A&M-SA) is committed to providing equal opportunity and access to all current and prospective students and employees. I am committed that we will cultivate an educational and work environment that is conducive to the personal and professional development of every employee. As president, one of my top priorities is to foster an environment that supports campus-wide inclusion, equity and a true awareness of the value of campus diversity. As I am responsible for achieving an equal employment opportunity environment, I task each of you to join me in sharing the responsibility for creating a welcoming environment where all individuals are treated equitably and with dignity and respect. Together, we will invite and value every voice. Each member of the campus community will be held accountable for his/her actions in promoting an inclusive environment.

In this spirit, A&M-SA is committed to providing equal opportunity in admissions, educational programs and employment of faculty and staff. A&M-SA will not discriminate or permit harassment against any individual on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, disability, genetic information, veteran status, sexual orientation, gender identity in admissions, educational programs or employment of faculty or staff. Further, equal opportunity and access will be provided to all current and perspective students and employees at A&M-SA.

Thank you for joining me in creating an atmosphere that values and nurtures community, respect and accessibility as well as fosters inclusion and diversity by demonstrated actions and statements.

If you have any questions related to equal employment opportunity, access or affirmative action, please direct them to Martha O. Gonzalez, Chief Human Resources Officer, at (210) 784-2059 or by e-mail.

Dr. Cynthia Teniente-Matson
