"The Measure of a Life is its Service.”
Sam Houston State University is committed to being an exemplary model of an ENGAGED CAMPUS through strong collaborative partnerships with local, national, and global communities.
A Message From The President
At Sam Houston State University, Academic Community Engagement is an essential part of who we are and what we are about. We firmly believe that the role of a regional comprehensive university is to actively contribute to the well being of the communities it serves. In the seven academic colleges, and indeed in every department across campus, our curriculum provides varied opportunities to gain and apply knowledge and skills to make life better. We have many inspiring examples of SHSU students, faculty and staff making a difference. While students are on our campuses, and then as they continue their professional and personal lives, we encourage and challenge them to live our motto, “The measure of a life is its service.”
- Dana G. Hoyt, President
