Diversity and Inclusion

If you are in immediate danger, please call 911


The department of history recognizes that the students, staff, faculty, and administration of Texas State University have been threatened because they adhere to the University’s stated value of “A diversity of people and ideas, a spirit of inclusiveness, a global perspective, and a sense of community as essential conditions for campus life.” As historians, we are acutely aware of the diversity of historical narratives. As teachers, we are dedicated to introducing our Texas State students to the variety of cultures and peoples that co-exist in our world. Therefore, committed as we are to the freedom of expression, we condemn bigoted speech, which threatens public safety, restricts academic freedom, and tacitly justifies hate. This rejection affirms our belief that a fuller understanding of our diverse pasts is essential to understanding our shared history and our common present.
