The chief interests of the college should be found in the relations of its students to their world and in mutual responsibilities of the individual to society.

The college has a tradition of loyal service to society through the training of individuals for cooperation in the great enterprise. Its function for the future must be to build for permanence, confidence, friendship, and hopefulness in human life. The college properly does not serve individuals but only through individuals serves the whole of mankind.1

The problem of this thesis is to analyze and appraise the aims of the Negro teacher-colleges in Texas and discover the extent to which courses are being offered to meet these aims.

The writer feels that there is need for such a study on the Negro teacher-colleges in Texas. The purpose of this study is to examine the functions of the college, to define its objectives and to discuss its procedures. The reason for discussing the college is to discover how it can best perform the function for which society maintains it and to see how well it is equipped to meet its objectives.
