Texas A&M University College of Architecture

Excellence in Diversity Award

The College of Architecture Diversity Council sponsors the “Excellence in Diversity Award” to recognize and honor the efforts of students, both undergraduate and graduate, that strive to promote understanding and appreciation of diversity in their academic studies.

Defining Diversity:

In the College of Architecture, Diversity is meant to encompass the full spectrum of characteristics of our community including (but not limited to) ethnic background, religious beliefs, age, political beliefs, socio-economic status, sexual orientation, physical ability and gender. We believe that a diverse college is one that embraces the richness of this variety and provides an environment in which each individual is respected and celebrated.
