Welcome and thank you for choosing to attend Wiley College. Choosing a college is one of the most important decisions you'll ever make! Wiley College was founded in 1873, in Marshall, Texas. The College is the first, accredited historically black college west of the Mississippi. The College embraces the challenges of the new millennium with an enthusiastic dedication and renewed commitment to its historic mission of 'excellence in teaching, advising, scholarship, and service'. Wiley remains resolute in its determination to produce graduates who are prepared to function effectively in a pluralistic, highly technological, rapidly changing and global society. This overreaching aspiration is in conjunction with the institutional theme: The place where every student can succeed.
