Diversity and Inclusivity Statement

The Department of Housing and Residential Life at Texas State University is committed to creating and sustaining a welcoming, inclusive, and socially just community that values, respects, celebrates, and advocates for all individuals.

As a department, we embrace a culture of care by empowering individuals' voices and valuing the diversity of our social identities.

We acknowledge that individually, and as a department, we are constantly learning and moving towards intellectual, social, and emotional growth through our processes, facilities, dialogue, and interactions with one another.

In an effort to break down systems of inequity, we will address incidents of bias and intolerance in accordance with Texas State University's Non-Discrimination Policy, UPPS No. 04.04.46.
