Office of Diversity and Inclusion

Welcome to the Office for Diversity and Inclusion at West Texas A&M University. We are committed to providing leadership, guidance, and resources in support of a diverse and inclusive campus. We know that this commitment requires WT to establish and sustain a climate and culture that deepens our intellectual environment. The Office for Diversity and Inclusion provides education, training, and programming that impacts the experience at WT for faculty, staff, students, and community. We aim to advance diversity, equity, and inclusive by providing the campus community with opportunities to extend their knowledge, perspectives, and experiences vital to performing in a culturally diverse and globally connected society.



A message from the Chancellor:

Over the past year, the Texas A&M System institutions have done an amazing job in responding to the pandemic and protecting the health of our faculty, staff and students.

With the end of the spring semester only 6-8 weeks away, A&M system members should continue to follow system guidance, “Guidance for Spring Semester of 2021 and Related Issues” issued in October 2020 on testing, face coverings, classes, physical distancing, occupancy limitations, co-curricular activities, among other matters.

Based on our assessment of current conditions, this step will help us successfully complete the semester and is consistent with Gov. Greg Abbott’s order that masking and other protocols should be decided by our institutions, not by the state.

At the conclusion of the spring semester, we anticipate System guidance being lifted so that all rules, procedures and practices regarding classes, travel, face coverings, testing, etc., will be determined locally at your institution informed by your conditions and reviewed by the System.

The System may provide additional guidance this semester or going forward, as conditions warrant.

John Sharp,

Chancellor, Texas A&M University System
