Congratulations to our faculty excellence recipients!

I am truly honored to be the President of Sam Houston State University. Our University is entering its 139th 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 Biology Laboratory Building, the Lowman Student Center Expansion, and our Art Complex.

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