A Message from President Denise M. Trauth

March 18, 2021


Dear Students and Colleagues,

There are no words to adequately express our sorrow regarding the grief that the Asian community is collectively experiencing because of the murders in the Atlanta area on March 16. 

Our students, colleagues, friends, and community members are hurting because of this atrocity, which has been compounded by a year of increased anti-Asian bigotry.  At Texas State University, we stand with our Asian students, colleagues, and community to condemn all forms of bigotry and hate.  We encourage those who may need assistance processing this painful tragedy to contact the Texas State Counseling Center.

We hold our Asian students, faculty, staff, and community members close to our hearts during this difficult time and we are prepared to support them as members of the Bobcat family.

Sincerely,

Denise M. Trauth
President
