OUR STORY

Working Towards a Better Tomorrow in Post-Secondary Education

Dealing with the challenges of today requires problem-solvers who bring different perspectives and are willing to take risks. The Texas Association of Diversity Officers in Higher Education emerged out of a pursuit to inspire and support professionals in the diversity and inclusion community, and a desire for actions to speak louder than words. We’re an organization driven by progressive ideas, bold actions, and a strong foundation of support.

The need for diversity officers is increasing at colleges and universities throughout the nation. To support these professionals, organizations such as the National Association of Diversity Officers in Higher Education advocate for best practices and policies as they relate to inclusion and compliance on college campuses. After nearly 5 years, the Texas Association of Diversity Officers in Higher Education (TADOHE) was restored and a new leadership team came on board, after an organization revitalization meeting which was held in late June 2019 at the University of Houston-Downtown.

OUR PURPOSE:

TADOHE is exclusively for charitable, scientific and educational purposes, more specifically to provide resources and support for Texas colleges and university leaders who want to pursue institutional diversity-related policies, goals, and/or strategies regarding students, faculty, staff and/or administrators in accordance with the mission of the National Association of Diversity Officers in Higher Education (NADOHE).
