When you’re wearing a uniform, it’s OK to be a badass.
I’ve seen it time and time again, but if you’re going to wear a uniform at work, it makes sense to get the best uniform possible.
You can dress like you’re the boss and the people who are working for you will respect you and respect you will look great, which is exactly what we see happen with the outfits worn by employees at the University of Texas.
I spoke with University of Houston Athletic Director Dave Heineman about the university’s commitment to diversity and its efforts to make UT a more inclusive place.
Heineman also discussed the importance of diversity in the athletic department and how it will impact athletics across the board.
The University of the Incarnate Word has a long and proud history of having a strong diversity and inclusion policy.
I have the privilege to have been the UT AD for nearly a decade and have seen first-hand how our athletics program has been a pioneer in this area.
The University of Incarnate Soul is a community institution, so it is our responsibility to be good stewards of the time and energy we devote to the pursuit of excellence and student success.
As the University continues to improve its diversity and inclusivity policies and procedures, I am committed to making UT a place where students of color, people with disabilities, and LGBTQI+ students feel welcome.
When we look back on our journey over the past decade, I know that the greatest achievement was the inclusion of more people of color in our community.
When you have people of all backgrounds and identities participating in our athletic programs, it is not only a great thing, but it is a great learning experience.
The students, staff and coaches who are at the forefront of the progress of our campus and our University are the people of faith and love and character that make our athletic teams and programs so special.
The UT community has embraced and is proud of the diversity of our community, and I believe that is reflected in the many different ways in which we honor the contributions of people of different races, ethnicities and sexual orientations.
When I speak about our diversity in our programs and our athletics programs, I also believe that our university will always be a place of opportunity and a place that students of all races, backgrounds and sexualities can feel comfortable.
As the University prepares to celebrate its 200th year in the Texas Athletic Conference, we want to reaffirm our commitment to building on that history of excellence, and we want every member of our football, men’s basketball and women’s basketball programs to be proud of their achievements and be a part of that legacy.
UT Athletics, UT community and UT are excited to welcome back the Aggies to the Lone Star Conference and look forward to an exciting, memorable year for our student-athletes, staff, boosters and fans.
