ESTABLISHED IN 1875 to educate recently emancipated slaves, Huston-Tillotson University (HT) nurtures a legacy of leadership and excellence in education by connecting knowledge, power, passion, and values as part of its mission. Affiliated with both the United Methodist Church and the United Church of Christ, the institution has a student population of more than 1,000 undergraduates.
HT students include an international contingent representing more than 18 countries from China to Nigeria. The W.E.B. DuBois Honors Program, named for the African-American intellectual and activist, provides students with a challenging curriculum above and beyond HT’s 19 areas of study.
The HT legacy extends beyond the classroom. Major League Baseball great Jackie Robinson coached the men’s basketball team before he joined the Brooklyn Dodgers, and he served as a trustee of the college following his stint in the majors. Today HT’s athletic teams compete in the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) as part of the Red River Athletic Conference.
Historical districts and an ever-growing number of venues surround the 23-acre East Austin campus, which is within walking distance of downtown. The revitalization of East Austin sees local businesses—particularly restaurants and boutiques—opening almost daily.
