UT Arlington Diversity Week - It's a Maverick World!

Monday, February 27 – Saturday, March 4, 2017

staff with Diversity Week t-shirtsFounded in spring 2008, our annual Diversity Week was established by Multicultural Affairs as a campus wide celebration of the multiple cultures that make up our Maverick community. We were thrilled in 2010 to join forces with the Office for Students with Disabilities to combine Disability Week and Diversity Week into one annual program. Featured events educate participants on issues regarding disability, race, sexual orientation, gender and religious diversity.
