November 6, 2020
Academic Strategic Communications
Faculty play a central role in the academic experience, progress and outcomes of our students in and out of the classroom — and serve a pivotal role as mentors and models of success. This role can have a deeper impact when the faculty are demographically representative of the students and communities they serve. As such, hiring outstanding, diverse tenured/tenure-track (T/TT) faculty is a key part of UTSA’s student success initiatives.

*Underrepresented minority (URM) faculty are faculty who identify race/ethnicity in one of the following groups: Hispanic, Black/African-American, American Indian or Alaskan Native, Native Hawaiian or Other Pacific Islander, or two or more races. International faculty (faculty who are not US citizens or legal permanent residents) are retained in a separate group and are not included as URM faculty.
