Making an Impact
In highly specialized facilities, through shared research efforts that span multiple disciplines, our faculty and students generate new knowledge and catalyze ideas into reality. They are pushing the boundaries in forensic anthropology, research psychology, materials engineering, biomechanics, emergency communications, medical geography and much more. Their creativity and determination lead to innovation.
We are proud of the university’s alignment with state and national needs. Collaborations with NASA, the National Institutes of Health, the U.S. Department of Agriculture and other organizations help us bring Texas State’s work to a wide audience. Our faculty, students and industry partners are making an impact on Texas and the world.

Focus: Child and adolescent health
“If we have a better understanding of how trauma affects the mind, body and behavior, then we can develop interventions that address the root cause of the problem, rather than offering treatments that only suppress the symptoms.”
Focus: Engineering for solar efficiency and water loss
“One of the biggest problems we’re going to face in the future is freshwater shortage. Water will always need to be transported ... we can determine if there are problems along the way and address them.”
