Connect with faculty and staff with Diversity Connections
An online profile and directory of faculty and staff members and how to connect with them. The directory allows you 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 this directory is to help you connect with Texas State faculty and staff who can serve as mentors, advocates, and a support system.
Mental health resources, via Minds Matter
Mental health problems are common in a college student population. Getting help early can reduce distress and prevent a problem from becoming a crisis. Texas State offers many resources, and our Minds Matter program can help you find what you need.
Mentor program, via Bobcat Bond
New students are paired with Texas State upperclassmen, staff or faculty to ease the transition into the university and support the adjustments to change. Research shows that students who receive mentoring are more likely to stay in college and graduate. We at Bobcat Bond believe that mentors truly do contribute to the success of students and we encourage all students to seek out a mentor.
Multicultural Lounge and Black Students' Resource Library
This space, housed in the Lampasas Hall, was established with the goal of "allowing students of different ethnicities to have access to an environment that is their own."
Office of Disability Services

Services are provided at affordable prices for college students, and health insurance coverage is not required to receive care. The Student Health Center also offers a university-endorsed student health insurance plan for students without insurance or those seeking more affordable coverage.
Our Patient Advocate
The patient advocate can help students obtain information and services, and when necessary advocate on behalf of students to ensure that their patient rights are protected. The patient advocate can also help students understand their personal responsibility when seeking healthcare.
Support for traditionally underrepresented students, via TRiO Programs
TRiO Programs (TRIO) are Federal outreach and student services programs designed to identify and provide services for traditionally underrepresented students (first-generation college students, students who meet low income guidelines, and students with disabilities). Services are free to those who qualify and are accepted into the programs. Learn more about all TRiO programs.
The existence of TRiO Programs is owed to the passing of The Higher Education Act of 1965 (HEA), signed by President Lyndon B. Johnson at Texas State University. The HEA made a college education attainable for thousands of lower- and middle-income students; this legislation is central to the legacies of our institution, Texas and the United States.
