Welcome to the Thomas F. Freeman Honors College at Texas Southern University.

As the dean, my vision for the college is for it to serve the needs of its scholars by providing a learning environment that fosters a commitment to excellence in education. It is a flagship of the university and strives to prepare the community and global leaders. The Thomas F. Freeman Honors College instills ethical standards and establishes meaningful exchanges with other learning communities locally, nationally, and internationally.

The Honors College's mission is to provide challenging courses and academic enhancement experiences for the scholars. We strive to promote critical thinking skills, intellectual engagement, and strong research opportunities. These qualities prepare scholars to excel in graduate or professional schools and a career path.
