Texas Southern University Sees a Consistent Increase in Graduates (588 hits)

This month, 1,199 Texas Southern University students will receive degrees from the university and another 181 students are expected to graduate in August. This represents an increase of 167 students over last year’s numbers. The second largest Historically Black College is home to 10 school and colleges with majors such as aviation management, emergency management & homeland security and administration of justice.

“This growth and increase of graduates is a testament to the tenacity of our students, faculty, and staff,” said TSU President Austin A. Lane.

“We are very proud of the effort they have made to complete their degrees, and I am proud of the TSU faculty and staff members who work with our students to help them reach this goal.”

On Saturday, May 18, TSU will conduct two commencement ceremonies (one at 8 a.m. and a second at 12:30 p.m.) in the Health & Physical Education Arena. Angela Rye, principal and CEO of Impact Strategies, a political advocacy firm in Washington D.C., will give the commencement address.

Upon enrollment, TSU students participate in “Project Graduation,” a campus-wide accountability system that maps out steps students should take each semester in the following areas: academics, financial planning, career exploration and wellness. Project Graduation utilizes a passport model where pathways are defined by student success points, which are outlined every 30 credit hours

Academics are a large part of the college experience at TSU, however, there is a heavy focus on the growth of the student in all aspects. They are encouraged to be academically sound and get involved on campus as well as in the community

“We know we have prepared and provided our students with resources, both inside and outside of the classroom, to help them excel in their respective fields,” said Provost Kendall Harris, Ph.D. “TSU is confident that, after the degrees are conferred and they leave campus as alumni, our graduates are well-rounded individuals who will make a mark on the world in whatever area they choose.”


Texas Southern University (TSU) honors our designation as a special-purpose institution for urban programming and research. TSU is a comprehensive university providing higher education access to the nation’s underserved communities. TSU’s academic and research programs address critical urban issues, and prepares its diverse student population to become a force for positive change in a global society. TSU offers more than 100 undergraduate and graduate programs and concentrations – bachelor’s, master’s, doctoral and professional degrees – organized into 10 colleges and schools on a 150-acre campus nestled in the heart of Houston’s historic Third Ward. The University’s enrollment has a population of more than 9,700 undergraduate and graduate-school academic candidates. Texas Southern has been a distinguished educational pioneer since 1927, and the University has become one of the most diverse and respected institutions in Texas. TSU has positioned itself as a proactive leader in educating underserved students and many who are the first in their family to attend college.
