University description (as per official university website)
Brief History of TWU
An act of the 27th Legislature in 1901 founded the Girls Industrial College, the school that would become Texas Woman's University in 1957. The school had then and has now a dual mission: to provide a liberal education and to prepare young women "for the practical industries of the age" with a specialized education.
Men have been admitted to TWU since 1972.
TWU today offers a comprehensive catalog of academic studies, including baccalaureate, master's and doctoral degrees. Now in its tenth decade, the University has grown from a small college to a major university. TWU is the largest university primarily for women in the United States, with the main campus in Denton and health science centers in Dallas and Houston.
