Inclusion and Diversity

The Importance of Inclusion

Texas is diverse. Texas State University reflects the population of Texas and it is up to us as a public institution to be actively inclusive of that diversity. Our mission is to create new knowledge and prepare graduates to excel as citizens of the world, and to achieve that mission we must ensure equitable opportunities for all members of the university community. Within this site, you’ll find information about how we hold ourselves accountable to that responsibility.

Diversity Connections Directory

Diversity Connections is a directory that gives students the opportunity to search faculty and staff based on their racial/ethnic background, Ally  status (Ally of Texas State, Trans Ally, Veteran Friendly Ally, and  Dreamer Ally), Department/Office, and Veteran Status. The goal of the  Diversity Connections directory is to help students connect with Texas State faculty and staff who can serve as mentors, advocates, and a support system.
