Welcome. This is an exciting time in the life of HBU. Since its founding in 1960, the University has grown into a thriving community of faith and scholarship offering students "A Higher Education" that prepares them not only to excel in their careers, but also to succeed at life. Our Web site is designed to provide you with a variety of information on the steps we are taking to make HBU a leading institution for Christian higher education in America.
 
From its home in the heart of Houston, Texas, one of the nation’s largest and most diverse metropolitan areas, HBU provides a learning experience that instills in students a passion for academic, spiritual, and professional excellence. This mission serves as the driving force behind our continued efforts to enrich the total student life experience.
 
By enhancing our campus facilities, strengthening our rigorous liberal arts core curriculum, expanding our graduate program offerings, and competing in NCAA Division I athletics, HBU is uniquely positioned to serve both undergraduate and graduate students seeking an excellent education.
 
Thank you for your interest in HBU. I hope you will take the opportunity to drop by and visit the HBU campus to experience firsthand all of the wonderful things that make the University the home of "A Higher Education." Our faculty, staff and students are ready to greet you.
