We demonstrate this commitment through our efforts to achieve equity, embrace our military-connected students and faculty and promote inclusivity across campus. We must strive to cultivate an educational and work environment that is conducive to personal and professional development and free of discrimination, harassment and retaliation.

As president, my priority is to foster an equal opportunity environment that provides access, values respect and nurtures growth. Each of you to shares this responsibility with me. Together we can sustain an environment that values every voice, treats individuals with dignity and ensures that we are accountable to each other.

In this spirit, A&M-San Antonio reaffirms its commitment to equal opportunity and access in admissions, educational programs and employment.
