Texas State University values a diversity of people and ideas, a spirit of inclusiveness, a global perspective, and a sense of community as essential conditions for campus life. We are proud to reflect the various backgrounds found in our great state of Texas. The office of Equity and Access is committed to enriching Texas State’s learning and working environments by attracting and supporting a more diverse faculty, staff, and student body; one in which each person is valued equally and celebrated for their contributions.
