Texas Southern University(TSU) is a public university established on September 14, 1927, with an institutional level of four or more years.

It is located in Houston, Texas with a sprawling 150-acre campus. The university is committed to ensuring equality, offering innovative programs that are responsive to its urban setting, that transform diverse students into lifelong learners, engaged citizens, and creative leaders in their local, national, and global communities.

TSU is a student-centered comprehensive doctoral university that works on the mission to create leaders in their local, national, and global communities.

On September 14, 1927, the Houston Public School Board agreed to fund the development of two junior colleges, one for whites and one for African-Americans.

The Colored Junior College was established to provide an opportunity for African-Americans to receive college training. The Junior College progressed fast enough that by 1931, it became a member of the Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools and was approved by the Southern Association of Colleges. In the summer of 1934, the Houston School Board changed the junior college to a four-year college and the name to Houston College for Negroes. Under the separate but equal concept, the intention of Senate Bill 140 and House Bill 788 was to create a new university for Negroes in Houston that would become the equivalent of the University of Texas in Austin which they created successfully.

  • On June 1, 1951, the name of this new university for Negroes was changed from Texas State University for Negroes to Texas Southern University after students petitioned the state legislature to remove the phrase “for Negroes”.

  • The total student population of the TSU is 9732 students. It offers a plethora of more than 100 undergraduate, graduate, and professional programs.

  • They also made the transition online and now offer 4 undergraduate and 5 graduate programs that can be completed online.

  • Texas Southern University has received accreditation from the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools and Commission on Colleges.
