THE UMHB STORY

For 177 years, the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor has equipped students for purposeful lives that honor God. As the oldest continually operating school in Texas, we are fiercely proud of and immensely grateful for our unique story.

Propelled by an unapologetically Kingdom-minded commitment, UMHB is dedicated to helping students deepen their faith while championing each student’s remarkable potential.

Together, we live with purpose, on purpose.

Count the ways

Chartered by the Republic of Texas, UMHB was established to provide the finest in Christian higher education. And for 177 years, our focus on that mission has never wavered.

UMHB has been everything I wanted out of a college - fabulous professors who are passionate about what they do and chances to participate in so many different experiences. I have grown academically, but I think I have also grown in character, as a person and a leader.
