Center for Diversity and Gender Studies

Welcome to the Center for Diversity & Gender Studies!

The Center for Diversity and Gender Studies (CDGS) is a part of the College of Liberal Arts, one of the seven colleges at Texas State University. CDGS, originally named Center for Multicultural and Gender Studies, was established at the beginning of the 1984 academic year.  Our mission is to assist students and faculty in preparing for a pluralistic society by providing resources that encourage the infusion of interdisciplinary curriculum that addresses race, class, gender, sexual orientation and ethnicity. 

Students wishing to declare a CDGS academic minor should contact the advising center in the college of their major.

To learn more about the minor programs or to discuss course substitutions students should contact the Center for Diversity and Gender Studies.

Missing in Brooks County follows the stories of two families searching for their loved ones who went missing in the fields in Brooks County, Texas. A gripping drama, it is also a deeply humane portrait of the human rights workers, activists, and law enforcement agents who confront the life-and-death consequences of a broken immigration system.

A panel discussion moderated by Dr. John Mckiernan-González, Director of the Center for the Study of the Southwest, will immediately follow the film screening. Panelists will include:
  • Lisa Molomot, Co-director and producer of "Missing in Brooks County."
  • Jeff Bemiss, Co-director and producer of "Missing in Brooks County."
  • Dr. Kate Spradley, Professor of Anthropology and Director of Operation Identification at Texas State University.
  • Eddie Canales, Founder and director of the South Texas Human Rights Center in Falfurrias, Texas.
