Paul Quinn College is America's greatest higher education transformation story and an example of the new urban college model. www.pqc.edu
Paul Quinn College is a private, faith-based, four-year, liberal arts-inspired college that was founded on April 4, 1872 by a group of African Methodist Episcopal Church preachers in Austin, Texas. The school’s original purpose was to educate freed slaves and their offspring. Our mission is to provide a quality, faith-based education that addresses the academic, social, and Christian development of students. It is one of the nation’s consortium of Historically Black Colleges and Universities as well as the nation's first urban Work College in the Work College consortium. Members of the College’s student body, alumni, faculty and staff, called Quinnites, embrace the institutional ethos of “WE over Me” and are dedicated to honouring the “Four Ls of Quinnite Leadership,” which are: Leave places better than you found them; Lead from wherever you are; Live a life that matters; and Love something greater than yourself.
