The world is diverse and interconnected. To ensure success in our students’ careers and lives, we expand their world view to encompass diverse cultures, ideas, thoughts, living experiences and more.
The addition of DEI Essential Competency enriches TCU’s Core Curriculum by encouraging faculty to create new courses or modify existing courses with learning objectives related to DEI. This overlay will encourage our students to learn about, encounter and explore identities and communities that are new to them, and to engage critically with the dynamics of difference and power that shape their lives.
TCU offers many programs and courses that increase students’ knowledge of human diversity and emphasize broader perspectives.

Six Meta-Tutors completed an extra 10 hours of Level 2 training to provide additional support in study strategies, study skills, time management and goal setting.
