Summiting the Mountain

A Message from President Jay Hartzell

“UT can be a world-class university only if we embrace the ideas and perspectives of a truly diverse set of talented people — of every background, race and life experience. That is how we can solve the hardest problems facing Texas, our country and the world. It is also how we can best enable our students to learn, develop and lead while they are on our campus, in their careers and throughout their lives. But it goes even deeper than that. Our university has made great strides in its commitment to diversity and inclusion in recent years, but we have much more progress to make. Our goal is to create an environment on the Forty Acres where all community members — students, faculty and staff — are empowered to be true to themselves, to participate fully in our vibrant university and to thrive as individuals. We won’t rest until we reach that goal.”

— Jay Hartzell, President
