In the fall of 1997, we opened SMU-in-Plano in Plano’s Legacy Business Park and expanded our reach north into Collin County and beyond. The journey of SMU-in-Plano began with a few well defined goals:
- Extend SMU’s reach to meet the educational needs of residents in rapidly growing Collin County
- Make it easier for working professionals to earn advanced degrees and certificates necessary to get ahead in their careers
- Collaborate with area businesses and design programs that tap into the resources of the entire university.
We’ve come a long way. Today, SMU-in-Plano enrolls over 800 adults in some of the finest graduate studies and professional development programs in North Texas and the nation. Each summer, more than 2,000 children participate in programs designed to stretch their imagination and enhance their academic skills.
Let us know what we can do to help you enhance your career, inspire additional learning, and take you in new directions. We’re in the neighborhood.
The SMU-in-Plano Campus
Our facility is located in the heart of Legacy Business Park, just off Tennyson Parkway in Plano and Collin County. The campus is set on 16 landscaped acres and consists of four buildings with close to 200,000 square feet and more than 50 classrooms and meeting spaces. An additional nine acres adjacent to the facility will give SMU-in-Plano room to grow in the future.
