Diversity Fellowship seeks to revolutionize the way the University confronts diversity on campus. Serving as a student led branch of the Office of Student Leadership and Engagement, Diversity Fellowship is committed to promoting, appreciating and recognizing diversity on campus.

Since its start in 2004, the fellowship has worked to gauge the campus climate, develop and implement strategies, serve as an anti-bias resource, and prepare students to become global citizens and ambassadors for a more inclusive University environment. 

Diversity Fellowship members plan and implement events each semester focusing on ability, age, ethnicity, gender, race, religion, sexual orientation and socio-economic status/class, collectively known as the Big Eight.  Annual events include the Black History Luncheon and Diversity Week.
UT students can help support a more diverse environment by participating in sponsored events or by joining Diversity Fellowship.
