OUR HISTORY Texas A&M University-Commerce began as East Texas Normal College in 1889 when founder William Leonidas Mayo opened the doors to a one-building campus in Cooper. His creed, which continues today, was "ceaseless industry, fearless investigation, unfettered thought, and unselfish service to others." The institution's history of dynamic change began in 1894 when "Mayo's College" moved to Commerce. The State of Texas took over the campus in 1917 and the name was changed to East Texas State Normal College. In 1923, the school was renamed East Texas State Teachers College. The graduate program was added in 1935, and in 1957 the Legislature, recognizing that the purpose of the institution had broadened from teacher education, changed the name to East Texas State College. Following the inauguration of the first doctoral program in 1962, the name was changed to East Texas State University. In 1996, the institution entered The Texas A&M University System and became Texas A&M University-Commerce. The main Commerce campus and six off-site locations—Corsicana, Dallas, McKinney, Mesquite, Midlothian, Rockwall—and online offerings, continue to meet the undergraduate, graduate and professional needs of the citizens of Northeast Texas and beyond.
