Huston-Tillotson University (HT) is a four-year, private, historically black college or university (HBCU) that has educated students since 1875. HT serves a diverse student population (68% African-Americans, 28% Hispanic/Latinx), most of whom have high financial need (73% Pell-eligible). Many HT students will be the first in their families to graduate college. HT embodies the founding purposes of mother institutions Samuel Huston College and Tillotson College to provide higher education opportunities to the descendants of freed slaves. Today, HT continues to advance diversity, equity, and the legacy of our nation’s 100 HBCUs with a mission to “nurture a legacy of leadership and excellence in education, connecting knowledge, power, passion, and values.”
