Paul Quinn College

Founded in 1872 by the African Methodist Episcopal Church and named after the fourth AME bishop, Paul Quinn College is the oldest historically black liberal arts college in Texas. Originally in Austin, it relocated to Waco in 1877 and then to its current home in Dallas in 1990.

Last year, PQC's unused football field was turned into a community farm in partnership with Pepsico's Food For Good initiative. The college was named HBCU of the Year for 2011 by the Center for HBCU Media Advocacy Inc., and Michael J Sorrell was among the nominees for President of the Year.
