Austin College is a small liberal arts college where big things happen. Students and faculty engage in partnerships in learning that allow their students to become truly invested in their education. The college was founded by Princeton-educated Presbyterian missionary Dr. Daniel Baker. Austin College enjoys a place in early Texas history and remains a recognized leader in higher education for innovative programs, a strong faculty, and dedicated students. Austin College focuses on global awareness, and is proud of the fact that more than 70 percent of graduates of the last decade (and beyond) have studied internationally during their Austin College education. Our student body is diverse, welcoming, and inclusive.
