On behalf of our more than 500 staff members and nearly 400 contract employees, welcome to the Finance and Support Services division at Texas State University! Our goal is to provide outstanding customer service that makes life easier for our faculty, staff, and students while providing a challenging, safe, and satisfying work environment while maintaining the fiscal and statutory integrity of the university.  This is accomplished through good communication, clear and concise operating policies and procedures, the adoption of best practices where appropriate, enhanced use of technology, and exceptional stewardship of the University's financial, human and physical resources.

Texas State University is a public, student-centered, doctoral-granting, research institution dedicated to excellence in serving the educational needs of the diverse population of Texas and the world beyond.  The Vice President for Finance and Support Services is the chief financial officer for the university and is specifically charged with advising the President, President's Cabinet, and Texas State University System Board of Regents on matters related to finance, business operations, facilities management, construction, security, and human resources.  Nine areas are housed under the auspices of Finance and Support Services, managing such diverse units as payroll, student accounts, employee benefits, the bookstore, food services, travel, campus maintenance and landscaping, budgeting, transportation, environmental safety, and space planning, and the university police department, just to name a few.  The core values of customer service, financial integrity, and a safe and pleasant work environment provide the foundation for all that we do.

I hope that you will take the time to peruse the services that we offer and to become familiar with Finance and Support Services’ vision, mission, diversity statement, and statement of philosophy.  Our goal for this web site is to provide the information you need in a user-friendly and efficient format.  Your feedback is always welcome and appreciated.
