Texas State University System

Research with Relevance

Throughout the Texas State University System, faculty and students are engaged in meaningful, relevant research that expands knowledge for the benefit of Texas and its people. Researchers from Lamar University, Sam Houston State University and Sul Ross State University have developed a water purification system that requires no electricity and can be deployed virtually anywhere in the world.

Graduates Making a Difference

Our institutions provide students the knowledge, skills and inspiration needed to excel in their chosen field. That's one reason why our graduates are making a difference in Texas and around the world. Dan Blocker, who gained fame as "Hoss" Cartwright on the TV series' Bonanza, graduated from Sul Ross State University with a master's degree in dramatic arts.

Rio Grande College Expands

Early next year, Sul Ross State University Rio Grande College will open its fourth campus in Castroville. The new campus, constructed through a joint partnership with Southwest Texas Junior College and the Medina Valley Independent School District, expands RGC's reach into the greater San Antonio area.

Degrees that Work for Texas

From certificate programs to Ph.D.s, the academic programs offered by our institutions are aligned with the practical needs of our state and its dynamic, growing economy. Students in Texas State University's aquatic biology program have the opportunity to work with world-class faculty who study the streams, rivers, lakes and wetlands of Texas.
