Office of the President

I am truly honored to be the President of Sam Houston State University. Our University is entering its 140th 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 multiple campus construction projects currently under way, including the Lowman Student Center Renovation, College of Osteopathic Medicine Facility and Coliseum Parking Garage.

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