Prairie View A&M University
Prairie View A&M University was founded in 1876 and is the second-oldest public institution of higher education in Texas. With an established reputation for producing engineers, corporate leaders, nurses and educators, the historically black college offers a variety of bachelor's, master's and doctoral degree programs through eight colleges and schools. A member of The Texas A&M University System, the University is dedicated to fulfilling its land-grant mission of achieving excellence in teaching, research and service. During the university's 142-year history, more than 72,000 academic degrees have been awarded.
A demand for graduate and certification courses led Prairie View A&M University to establish a presence in the Northwest Houston area in the late 1980s. Assigned by the original Office of Civil Rights Texas Plan, PVAMU answered the call to satisfy the higher education needs of the citizens of Texas, especially in the Northwest Houston Corridor. The Northwest Houston Center is a fully functional extension of the PVAMU main campus catering to working professionals interested in elevating themselves professionally. The facility offers access to a bookstore, fitness center, computer labs and is home to one of the Texas A&M University AgriLife extension offices.
