Fostering a liberal arts community whose values and actions encourage contributions toward the well-being of humanity has been the core purpose of Southwestern University for nearly two centuries.
The founders of Southwestern’s four root institutions understood the importance of higher education in enriching the lives of Texans both culturally and economically and that the development of citizens and future leaders on a new frontier must be rooted in the wisdom of the ages while being nourished with new ideas.
Thanks to the many years of support from alumni and friends, today’s Southwestern students are making impacts at home and abroad that would be unimaginable to our founders.
But we are just getting started.
We are creating a campus experience for the future, inspired by a nearly 200-year commitment to the liberal arts by the first university in Texas. We will build on that rich history as beloved landmarks receive new life and new places are made to live, learn and discover.
