Step Up for State

On October 7-8, for 1,899 minutes, the entire Bobcat community came together to support projects from all across our university. Thank you for making a difference during this year’s Step Up for State. Together we have worked as one to bring a better future for our Bobcats.

This year, the Step Up for State campaign featured student-focused funds for Texas State University’s Big Ideas: Learning with AR/VR, Translational Health, Materials with Intelligence, Harnessing Big Data, and Innovation & Entrepreneurship.
