Is it legal for a college to "lead us all in prayer" before a meeting?

I attended an adjunct faculty meeting at a public two-year college in Texas. Before the meeting, the campus vice president asked an instructor to lead us all in prayer. So we prayed. I was under the impression that public colleges weren't permitted anything more than a "moment of silence." Or does that apply only to elementary and secondary schools?

However, I've just discovered that his new teacher is demanding that his class pray before lunch and possibly nap time. [more inside]
