Our History

We were born in 1909 to "increase the usefulness of the University to the people of Texas." Throughout our history, campus-wide collaboration has resulted in innovations and cutting-edge delivery to serve students and their communities. Visionaries tackled barriers to education with offerings that evolved from by-mail correspondence into 24/7 online courses.
