Diversity Statement

The Department of Communication Studies supports Texas State University’s Diversity and Inclusion Policy Statement:
Diversity and Inclusion Policy Statement
Texas State believes that freedom of thought, innovation and creativity are fundamental characteristics of a community of scholars. To promote such a learning environment, the university has a special responsibility to seek diversity, to promote inclusion, to instill a global perspective in its students, and to nurture sensitivity, dialogue and mutual respect. Discrimination against or harassment of individuals on the basis of race, color, national origin, religion, sex, sexual orientation, age, disability, veterans' status, gender identity or expression are inconsistent with the purposes of the university.
The Department of Communication Studies makes a conscious commitment to transforming these words from beliefs into embodied actions that will manifest in all aspects of department activities — leadership, planning, governance, curriculum, courses, extracurricular and cocurricular initiatives, relationships, and more.
