Diversity & Inclusion Initiatives

Diversity and Inclusion Initiatives

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

Efforts include:
  • Instituting a program of faculty and staff development to enhance campus diversity
  • Implementing strategies that will support diversity learning in the classroom.
  • Enhancing recruitment of African American and Hispanic students
  • Ensuring higher levels of African American and Hispanic student retention
  • Ensuring effective recruitment of African American and Hispanic faculty and staff
  • Using Texas State's internally and externally projected image to promote our commitment to diversity
  • Making funds available through Research Enhancement Grants to conduct research on diversity issues.
  • Creating a system of oversight, assessment, and accountability to ensure that the goal of greater diversity is achieved.
  • Annually recommending to the President, faculty and a staff nominees for the Excellence in Diversity Award.

Diversity Plan Initiatives

Since the beginning of the strategic plan period, 2004, Texas State University has provided more than $200,000 specifically designated for on-campus projects that support our diversity plan goals. This represents a significant commitment to diversity in addition to the many efforts of offices across campus to reach our diversity goals.
