Our students are breaking barriers all over the globe, pushing the limits of what previously seemed impossible.

Breaking barriers is about discovering your potential and purpose, persevering through life's challenges and realizing your dreams. At Texas Woman's, we help you learn to be your best self, one that celebrates your individuality, propels you toward your goals and breaks barriers along the way.

"With persistent perseverance, you can break through any barrier."

-Lailah Gifty Akita

You Belong Here

When Nari Miller decided to join her Minnesota high school wrestling team, there was no women's league. Nari wrestled against men for much of her high school career, working to prove women belonged on the mat until the state allowed a women’s league. Because of her barrier-breaking work, Nari went on to win the State Champion of Minnesota Women’s Wrestling title and now wrestles for TWU.
