Diversity & Inclusion
At Texas A&M, we believe that diversity is a vital component of our culture of excellence. We are committed to providing a welcoming, inclusive and respectful environment for individuals from all areas, affirming and encouraging individuals to take pride in their identity as part of the Aggie Family.
Texas A&M provides numerous opportunities to embrace diversity through a wide range of student, faculty and staff engagement, as well as education and accountability efforts. Some specific programs and services include the Department of Multicultural Services, International Student Services and Disability Services.
INTERNATIONAL STUDENT SERVICES
We help our large international student population — more than 5,900 from 129 different countries — get acclimated to the university, but you can help, too. Get to know an international student while working together on a class project, as members of a student organization or at a sporting or cultural event on campus.
DEPARTMENT OF MULTI-CULTURAL STUDIES
We provide multiple support services for current and prospective students from underrepresented populations and offer diversity education programs that foster inclusive learning environments for all students. Your success will be promoted through academic support and the enhancement of life, leadership, advocacy and mentoring skills.
Disability Services facilitates appropriate accommodations to empower students to be self-advocates. Staff members interact and collaborate with students, faculty and staff to achieve equal access for students with disabilities.
INTERNATIONAL LEARNING EXPERIENCE
Texas A&M ranks first in the nation among public universities and second among all universities in the number of students who work, study or volunteer abroad. The university goal is for 90 percent of our students to have an international experience including study abroad, research, internship, or outreach and exchange. These high-impact experiences help develop empathy toward other cultures and viewpoints, and the cultural skills needed for engagement in a global society.
