Diversity Strategic Plan

Revised (2005) Diversity Strategic Plan

In support of an increasingly diverse student body, Texas State University in San Marcos uses a diversity management system based on a shared responsibility model that supports progress towards meeting our diversity goals. Annually Texas State participates in a reporting process that provides analysis on our program.

A.   Texas State will increase the recruitment and retention rates of Black/African-American and Hispanic/Latino students with a special emphasis on achieving HSI designation (At least 25% Hispanic/Latino full-time equivalent (FTE) undergraduate enrollment; of which 50% are low-income. Low income is defined as 150% of the poverty level as determined by the Bureau of Census.)

Measure #1: Annually Texas State will demonstrate an increase in the matriculation yield of first-time freshman to 48% and transfer applicants to 75% with an emphasis on Black/African-American and Hispanic/Latino students.
   
Measure #2: Annually Texas State will demonstrate an increase in the retention rates for new Black/African-American and Hispanic/Latino freshman to 78% and new Black/African-American and Hispanic/Latino transfer students to 80%.

Measure #3: Annually, Texas State will make substantial progress towards achieving HSI status.

B.  In support of an increasingly diverse student body, Texas State will increase the recruitment and retention rates of Black/African-American and Hispanic/Latino faculty and the curriculum will reflect multicultural content and perspectives.

Measure #1: Annually Texas State will demonstrate an increase in Black/African American and Hispanic/Latino faculty hires considering the availability of appropriately trained Black/African-American and Hispanic/Latinos within the discipline.

Measure#2: Annually Texas State will demonstrate an increase in the retention rates in the Black/African-American and Hispanic/Latino tenure track faculty.

Measure#3: Annually two courses in each college will be newly developed or modified to reflect a multicultural perspective.

C.  In support of an increasingly diverse student body, Texas State will increase the recruitment and retention rates of Black/African-American and Hispanic/Latino staff and will continue to build a work environment welcoming of diverse people, ideas and perspectives.

Measure #1: Annually Texas State will demonstrate an increase in the number of Black/African-Americans and Hispanics/Latinos in each of the EEO categories with a special emphasis on senior administrative levels.

Measure #2: Annually Texas State will demonstrate an improvement in the increase of the utilization of HUB products and services, as in its performance against the Texas  Building and Procurement Commission HUB goals.
