CONCURRENT RESOLUTION
         WHEREAS, For more than 90 years, Texas Southern University
  has played an important role in higher education in the Lone Star
  State, and while the school currently offers baccalaureate,
  master's, and doctoral degree programs in numerous schools, it does
  not have a divinity program or a school of religion; now, therefore,
  be it
         RESOLVED, That the 87th Legislature of the State of Texas
  hereby direct the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board to
  conduct a study on the creation of a divinity program, from
  undergraduate to doctoral degrees, at Texas Southern University
  with a goal to establish a program before the start of the 88th
  regular legislative session; and, be it further
         RESOLVED, That the secretary of state forward an official
  copy of this resolution to the chair of the Texas Higher Education
  Coordinating Board.
