    Langston University, a land grant historically Black institution of higher learning, will continue its rich tradition of developing leaders from a diverse, multi-cultural student body through excellent teaching, research, community service and public and private sector partnerships. As Langston University moves from Excellence to Greatness, it will be recognized for providing solutions to problems facing under-served populations in Oklahoma, the nation, and the world.


    The mission of Langston University is to provide excellent post-secondary education to individuals seeking knowledge, skills, and attitudes that will enhance the human condition and promote a world that is peaceful, intellectual, technologically advanced, and one that fulfills the needs of nations and individuals alike. Langston University strives to educate individuals to become the leaders of tomorrow within their local, national, and global communities. A reflection on the Langston University history as a land grant institution established in 1897 “to instruct both male and female Colored persons,” the mission of the University continues to be the education of African-Americans in the arts, sciences, humanities, business, agriculture, education, nursing and health professions. Langston University offers post secondary education leading to associate, baccalaureate, masters, and doctoral degree programs. As a University with an urban mission in a rural setting, Langston University has the challenge of educating individuals who will serve their communities in urban centers as well as rural communities. To fulfill the mission, Langston University actively recruits faculty and students who support and complement the purpose and functions
    of the University.
