Prairie View A&M University, the first state supported College in Texas for African Americans, was established during the Reconstruction Period after the Civil War in 1876. The four-year senior college program began in 1919 and in 1937, a division of graduate studies was added. In 1973, the name of the institution was changed to Prairie View A&M University, and its status as an independent unit of the Texas A&M University System was confirmed.
