Students in front of status of civil rights champion Barbara Jordan

A message from President Fenves

"For half of UT’s 135-year existence, the university did not admit African American students. Our history of exclusion and segregation, gives us a responsibility to stand as champions of the educational benefits of diversity. It is vital, not only that qualified students have access to UT, but that once here, they have the opportunity to work with, learn from, and alongside, a diverse group of students, faculty, and staff. People who reflect the world and workforce they will soon enter into."

--President Gregory L. Fenves
