It is my great honor and pleasure to welcome you to Sul Ross State University! Our campuses span a fascinating part of Texas—Alpine, in the heart of the beautiful Big Bend area, and Del Rio, Eagle Pass and Uvalde along the vibrant, bicultural Texas/Mexico border.

While I’m new to Sul Ross State University, as a native of El Paso, I am very familiar with West Texas and I’ve come to know the SRSU campus in Alpine over the course of my work while with the Texas State University System. What you’ve heard is true –there is something very special about the areas we serve in our great state, and Sul Ross State University is vital to the continued growth and progress of our students and the communities we serve.

Sul Ross State University provides students with the education they need to translate their passions into a career they love. This life-changing experience creates multi-generational impact, transforming the lives of our students and their families. We value student learning and strive to provide high quality education in a welcoming, supportive environment. We take pride in the fact that we serve a diverse population including many first-generation college students as well as non-traditional students, international students, student athletes, and graduate students.

From teaching, coaching and law enforcement, to science, ranch management and fine arts, Sul Ross offers more than 60 undergraduate and graduate degree programs. Known as the Frontier University of Texas, Sul Ross encourages each student to explore their own frontiers and make, meet, and exceed their educational, personal, and professional goals.
