Biographical Sketch

When Texas Technological College opened in 1925. The School of Home Economics boasted enrollment of 78 students, three staff persons, and was composed of the department of Clothing and Design and the department of Foods and Nutrition. The school was one of the four original units of Texas Technological College, and grew to include over 19 faculty members by 1955. The faculty even taught art courses until an art department was later established in 1927. Under the strong leadership of its former deans, the College of Human Sciences grew in both size and reputation.

The debate to change the name from "the School of Home Economics" to "the College of Human Sciences" was roughly two years in the making. Officially becoming the College of Human Sciences on January 1, 1993, the college held a six-day "Celebrating the Challenge of Change" event with several noted speakers, presentations and dedications.
