Welcome to Sam Houston State University!

I am truly honored to be the President of Sam Houston State University. Our University is entering its 138th year of service so we have a long and well-established history of providing premier higher education in the state of Texas.

Sam Houston State University offers a wide range of high-quality undergraduate, masters level and doctorate programs that can fit the needs of virtually any student.

To better support the academic mission and social life of students on our campus, we have over $100 million in campus construction projects currently under way, including The Fred Pirkle Engineering Technology Center, South Dining Hall, and South Residential Complex.

I encourage you to visit Sam Houston State University by scheduling a campus tour through the Visitor Center.
