Texas Southern University Board of Regents Special Announcement

The Texas Southern University Board of Regents, the Board’s counsel and its internal auditor proactively contacted local authorities after confirming certain improprieties related to the admissions process within the University based on an internal investigation.

The preliminary findings of the investigation were confirmed, presented and delivered by the University to local authorities. The person involved with these improprieties is no longer employed by the University. The investigation is ongoing and the University is fully cooperating with investigators.

As part of the Board’s oversight responsibility, it has launched a full and comprehensive review of the University’s admissions. This includes enrollment, financial aid, scholarship protocols and standards for all University colleges. This process is being conducted using independent auditors, attorneys and outside experts.

The University’s academic integrity, trust of students, faculty, alumni and the public at large are of utmost importance. The Board is committed to ensuring all activities at the University are conducted in an ethical and transparent manner in accordance with the University’s mission, vision and values. The University will have no further comment until the investigative process is complete.
