Belonging

One Campus, Many Voices

Genuine variety encompasses more than just variations in personal backgrounds, identities, affiliations, approaches, and demographics. It also involves eliminating obstacles for underrepresented groups and establishing environments and chances that enable individuals to fully engage in the university experience.

Sam Houston State University is dedicated to fostering a campus environment that welcomes a wide range of perspectives. This goal is achieved through active evaluation of policies and operational strategies, along with the implementation of programs that aim to overcome institutional hurdles in order to build a comprehensive university community with multifaceted viewpoints. Additionally, the University recognizes and appreciates its duty to nurture an environment of fairness and openness, where students, faculty, staff, and the community acknowledge the advantages of collaboration and mutual respect across various identities and experiences.
