Staff Council Supports the Mission, Values and Goals of Texas State University

Directional Signs

Staff Council is your voice for a better U. We realize that as staff our job is to support the mission, values and goals of Texas State University through our day to day work at Texas State. And while we are committed to our core values that include diversity, equality, and inclusion, sometimes we need help in supporting these values.

These links represent some of the many resources available both on and off campus. If you have a problem that is not covered under these resources, please contact us directly at staffcouncil@txstate.edu.
