The University of Texas at Brownsville (UTB) College of Education (COE) values diversity among its students, staff, faculty and administration. UTB promotes an environment that appreciates every individual’s characteristics based on race, gender, gender identity, language, age, ethnicity, physical abilities, sexual orientation, religion, socioeconomic status, or national origin.
In the recruitment of students, the COE seeks candidates that embrace and respect differences among individuals—most notably differences in gender, ethnicity, race, sexual orientation, religious belief, and disability.
In the recruitment of faculty, applicants of diverse cultural, racial, and socioeconomic backgrounds are considered as positive contributors to the COE faculty and staff. In addition, faculty applicants who demonstrate interest in working with underrepresented student populations will also be considered positively.
