In spring of 1946, a group of local citizens met to form a steering committee for the purpose of establishing a junior college in 纳瓦罗 County. In a general election held July 16, 1946, voters approved the creation of 纳瓦罗 Junior 大学 and authorized a county tax to help finance the institution. In that same election voters chose a seven-member board of trustees to govern the college. The first students began classes 1946年9月. Most of the 238 members of that first student body were returning veterans from World War II taking advantage of assistance available under the newly 美国退伍军人法案. The first campus of 纳瓦罗大学 was the site of the Air 活动 of Texas, a World War II primary flight school located six miles south of Corsicana.
In 1951, the campus was moved to its present location, a 47-acre tract west of downtown Corsicana on State Highway 31. The main campus has now expanded to 103 acres with 几十座建筑. In 1954, 纳瓦罗 was accredited by the Southern Association of 大学s and Schools Commission on 大学s. The accreditation was reaffirmed in 1964, 1974, 1985, 1995, 2006, and again in 2017.
In 1974, the college broadened its philosophy and purpose to encompass the comprehensive community-based educational concept, adding occupational education programs and implementing new education concepts including individualized and self-paced instruction and the use of audio-tutorial instructional media. In keeping with the new educational role, the word “junior” was dropped from the institution’s name, and the official name 纳瓦罗 大学 was adopted by the 校董会.
Mexia, Midlothian and Waxahachie Campuses
In an attempt to address the growing needs of its service area, which consists of 纳瓦罗, Ellis, Freestone, Limestone, and Leon counties, the college began offering courses in various locations in those areas. Therefore, 纳瓦罗大学 established two permanent centers, the 纳瓦罗大学 South at Mexia and the Ellis County Center 在Waxahachie. Later, a third off-campus center was added in Midlothian. 今天,互联网 is the fastest-growing area of instruction at 纳瓦罗. We now also offer hundreds of Internet course offerings each semester. 纳瓦罗大学 truly offers the ways and means for every student to reach his/her educational goals.
