East Texas Baptist University (ETBU), as a Christ-centered institution of higher education, stands as a center for educational excellence and servant leadership development. ETBU students are challenged to pursue God’s vocational calling in a scholarly, Christian community where integration of biblical faith and learning is the foundation of students’ intellectual development and spiritual formation.

ETBU provides 43 undergraduate majors along with eleven graduate programs from its beautiful, 253-acre campus that is nestled in the Piney Woods of East Texas in Marshall, one of Texas’ oldest and most historic cities. With over 1,600 students, a student-faculty ratio of 15:1 and an average class size of 20, students experience a supportive and nurturing environment and receive rigorous curricular and cross-cultural learning experiences with specialized attention from faculty leaders through programs such as University Honors and Global Study and Serve.

ETBU develops Christian servant leaders by encouraging students to actively engage in community volunteer service and service learning activities. ETBU students currently devote over 50,000 hours in serving and ministering to the people of Marshall, in East Texas, and across the globe.

ETBU competes in 16 NCAA Division III sports, including football, men’s and women’s tennis, soccer, cross country, men’s and women’s golf, track and field, softball, baseball, and basketball, and women’s volleyball. With over 50 organizations and ministries, as well as five club sports teams, students are encouraged to be actively engaged within their campus community.
