Chartered in 1917 but not opened until 1925 due to the United States’ entry into WWI, TAMUK is the oldest continuously operating institution of higher learning in South Texas. Beginning as South Texas State Teachers College, its name changed as its role expanded to provide a wider variety of academic programs. This first name change was in 1929 when it became Texas College of Arts and Industries. The second, in 1967, when it became Texas A&I University. Four years after becoming a member of the Texas A&M University System in 1989, the University’s name changed to Texas A&M University - Kingsville to reflect that membership.

TAMUK offers more academic programs and degrees; provides better learning and living accommodations; does more research; awards more scholarships; and produces more successful graduates than any other college or university in the region.

TAMUK provides quality undergraduate and graduate programs for students of all ages via a selected blend of liberal and career academic programs with an emphasis on providing an intellectually challenging education reflecting high standards of academic performance. TAMUK dedicates itself to serving an ethnically and culturally diverse population with a commitment to its mission of teaching, research, and services in South Texas for the advancement of both knowledge and regional development.
