Wiley College is a four-year, privately-supported, historically black university located on the west side of Marshall, Texas. Wiley College holds distinction as one of the oldest historically black colleges west of the Mississippi River.
The physical plant of Wiley College occupies 70+ acres. Academic and administrative structures, residence halls, and the President's home comprise the campus' 17 permanent buildings, all of which have Internet connectivity. The College has done an exceptional job blending the old and new architectural structures to achieve an attractive architectural balance. Careful planning and landscaping design and maintenance combine to make the campus beautiful at every season.
This building, housing the library and named in honor of the tenth president of the College, was constructed and occupied in 1967. The two-story, air-conditioned building houses a variety of print, non-print and electronic holdings which support the curriculum and meet the needs of users. The Library houses a distinguished African-American Collection as well as other special collections, and maintains open-stack services for more than 75 hours per week. It houses two of the fourteen computer labs on campus.
This original two-story Carnegie Library structure was remodeled and converted into the main administrative complex. It contains the Offices for the President, the Executive Vice President, the Vice President for Business and Finance, Human Resources and Sponsored Programs. This building is named in honor of a former Bishop of the Central Jurisdiction of the Methodist Episcopal Church who once served as chairman of the Board of Trustees of the College.
