Diversity and Inclusion

The Department of History and the University share the belief in the necessity 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. We are committed to the freedom of expression. We condemn bigoted speech, which threatens public safety, restricts academic freedom, and tacitly justifies hate. We believe that a fuller understanding of our diverse pasts is essential to understanding our shared history and our common present.

Texas State University rejects “all manifestations of discrimination, including those based on race, ethnicity, gender, age, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion, or political beliefs.”
