WILEY COLLEGE WAS FOUNDED by the Freedman’s Aid Society in 1873 to train teachers for careers in African American elementary and secondary schools. Today, Wiley has a focused curriculum that includes 15 distinct degree programs.
More and more, students of all races and many nationalities find that Wiley, with its intimate Marshall, TX campus, is a welcoming place offering access to the amenities of Dallas and Shreveport while also providing an environment for students’ intellectual growth away from the distractions of big-city life.
Recent milestones at Wiley College include the expansion of its program offerings to include three fully online degree programs, the opening of the Student Success Academy to impact the achievement and persistence of new students through intensive advisement and coaching, and being named one of a few colleges by the state of Texas to help launch its Teacher Preparation Initiative to help train future educators to promote a “college-going” culture in their classrooms and to teach in a manner that allows students to be college-ready.
Thanks to the success of the movie “The Great Debaters” in 2007, our debate program has been reestablished and in 2009 the team won its first debate after an eighty-year hiatus and, in 2016, the team won the Overall Sweepstakes Championship at the 103rd Annual Pi Kappa Delta National Comprehensive Tournament.
