ESTABLISHED IN 1875 to educate recently emancipated slaves, making it the oldest institution of higher learning in Austin, 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. The university is affiliated with both United Methodist Church and United Church of Christ.

HT students represent the U.S. and more than 18 countries from around the globe, 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 NAIA as part of the Red River Athletic Conference.

Historical areas and an ever-growing number of venues surround the 23-acre East Austin campus, which is within walking distance of downtown.
