Texas Wesleyan University

Texas Wesleyan University was founded in 1890 as a small polytechnic
college with a handful of faculty and 111 students. The Polytechnic campus was
designated the Woman’s College for Southern Methodism, eventually becoming Texas Woman’s
College in 1914. A merger with the financially secure Texas Wesleyan Academy in Austin
kept the doors open for the polytechnic and created the new institution of Texas
Wesleyan College in 1935. Men were readmitted that same year leading from a Women’s
College to Co-ed. With an increasingly comprehensive academic and student life program
in addition to strong undergraduate programs, the University added graduate programs in
education in the 1970s and in nurse anesthesia in the 1980s eventually becoming the
institution of Texas Wesleyan University, in 1989.
Throughout its history, the University has remained closely affiliated with the United
Methodist Church. The University maintains special relationships with several United
Methodist congregations, and some of the trustees are representatives of the United
Methodist Church. In keeping with Methodist tradition, the University welcomes
individuals of all faiths and is thoroughly inclusive in its practices.
