STRATEGIC PLAN AND LEADERSHIP
Please provide your school’s diversity mission statement.
From the School’s Strategic Plan (April 2009)

“The quality of our pedagogic efforts depends on our ability to combine innovative teachers and talented students, both of whom have a wide range
of experiences and cultural perspectives. Therefore, achieving teaching excellence at McCombs requires that we recruit a talented and diverse student
body.”

How does your school’s leadership communicate the importance of diversity to your student body, faculty and administration?
The University of Texas at Austin McCombs School of Business communicates the importance of diversity to its student body first through the programs
it sponsors, such as the Explore McCombs Diversity Weekend, to recruit minority and female students and educate them about McCombs, the MBA
degree and career opportunities.

McCombs’ longtime partnerships with organizations that promote minorities and women in business, such as the Consortium for Graduate Study in
Management, also demonstrate the importance of diversity. In addition, by participating in the conferences, forums and fairs organized by these
organizations, McCombs is a visible partner in their efforts.
