Inclusive Campus Culture
Inclusive Excellence embraces a multicultural campus and fosters inclusive habits. The following initiatives sponsored by the Provost promote a campus environment that is welcoming for all and free of bias.
Race and Reconciliation Initiative
Provost Dahlberg supports the work of TCU’s Race and Reconciliation Initiative to study the university’s historical connections to racism, slavery and the Confederacy. This study will provide a critical understanding of TCU’s history, creating a foundation to make TCU a stronger institution as we plan for the future.
Academic Affairs partners with the Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion to create and bring together champions to develop, promote and chart Inclusive Excellence throughout TCU. Dscover more about the Provost’s Faculty Fellow and Academic Affairs DEI Advocate

Native American and Indigenous Peoples at TCU
Provost Dahlberg appointed Dr. Scott Langston as the inaugural Native American Nations and Communities Liaison, to collaborate with the Native American Advisory Circle regarding positive ways to respect, support and incorporate Native Americans at TCU. Dr. Langston coordinates several TCU initiatives to raise awareness of and respect for Native American peoples, cultures and perspectives; to learn from Native American knowledge; and to create a welcoming environment on campus for Native American students, faculty, staff and visitors.
