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.
