Paul Quinn College
Dallas, United States - Texas


University description (as per official university website)


Paul Quinn College was founded by a small group of African Methodist Episcopal circuit-riding preachers in Austin, Texas in 1872. The College was later relocated to Waco and established as a modest one-building trade school at Eighth and Mary Streets, where the Missouri-Kansas-Texas Railway Station now stands. Here, newly freed slaves were taught blacksmithing, carpentry, tanning and other skills.

As A.M.E. districts were developed throughout the South, funds became available for a larger school. Consequently, in 1881 two acres of the Garrison Plantation in East Waco were purchased. Later, twenty more acres were added. To construct the first building, a “Ten Cents a Brick” campaign was launched throughout the A.M.E. congregations, thus, pennies of the desperately poor people built the first solid monument to their dreams

In May 1882, Paul Quinn College, named for Bishop William Paul Quinn, A.M.E. Bishop of the Western States for almost thirty years, was chartered by the State of Texas. Today the College is the oldest liberal arts college for African Americans in the State of Texas. Taught by a faculty of five men and women, the curriculum, in the early days of the College, included: Mathematics, Music, Latin, Theology, English, Printing, Carpentry, Sewing and “Household, Kitchen, a Dining Room work.” The teaching facilities were indeed meager. In addition to the main brick building, there was one frame building for the kitchen and dining room, an office, and three shed rooms that served as dormitories for young men.

As the increasing need to serve and the value of Paul Quinn College became apparent, more buildings were erected on the campus. These buildings were made possible largely through contributions from interested patrons. Again, in 1950, Paul Quinn College experienced a great stage of physical expansion. A campus church, student union building, gymnasium and an administration building were all erected between 1950 and 1954. In addition, major renovations were made to other buildings on the campus.


Paul Quinn College is a historically black college.
The student enrollment at Paul Quinn College was 567 in 2007 (515 full-time equivalent).
