Campus Collaboration

TAMIU encourages leadership and structure across campus in order that we may continuously engage in and assess diversity, equity and inclusion, in addition to efforts focused on  increasing the effectiveness of existing  or developing programs and services.  In all these efforts, TAMIU is dedicated to providing access that builds consensus to drive and support equitable and inclusive outcomes.
