A Message from the Chancellor of Alamo Colleges

  • The Alamo Colleges strive “for an environment that values and affirms the diversity of its students and employees.  The College District also supports inclusiveness that recognizes, values, and reflects the diversity of the communities it serves.”
  • “Community Value:  we are committed to a joyful culture of learning and service where unity in diversity occurs through mutual respect, cooperation, and accessibility.”
  • “The mission of the Alamo Colleges is to empower our diverse communities for success.”

These significant references to diversity are quoted directly from our Policies, Shared Values, and  Mission Statement respectively. The latter two are also included in our Strategic Plan.  These three assertions can be found on our website:

We regard diversity as a source of strength that recognizes the students and communities we serve.  We consider it as an essential element of the social, historical, and economic fabric of South Texas.

Our multi-cultural communities, students, and employees provide a vitality of culture, thought, and perspectives to our Colleges that are encouraged and valued as a welcomed source of institutional identity and enhance the overall environment of educational, student, and professional development that our Colleges, faculty, and staff seek to provide.  The Alamo Colleges consider the fostering of mutual respect, understanding, inclusion, and the awareness of diversity’s value as natural extensions of this dynamic. 

This, in turn, provides a purposefulness that supports the success of our diverse students and enriches our communities.  And, in addition to the diversity reflected by our regional students, we have students that come from 57 countries.   We are also proud that all five (5) of our Colleges hold the official designation of Hispanic Serving Institutions (HSI), with St. Philip’s holding the unique distinction of being both an HSI and a Historically Black College.

It is our goal for all students as well as our employees to understand and appreciate the many vales of diversity.  We encourage faculty to infuse diversity into the curriculum and to take advantage of the many opportunities afforded by the instructional environment to discuss and evaluate diversity in teaching and learning as applicable in the competitive global workplace as well as within the fabric of our institutional culture.

This commitment to diversity also underscores how critical we consider the cultural mosaic of our communities as a core factor and a source of validation for the operational and educational life of the Alamo Colleges.  Our mission upholds the value of diversity as one that respects the inherent dignity of all individuals.

I encourage you to visit our entire website and experience the richness that is the Alamo Colleges.
