#IAmUH Campaign

The University of Houston personifies diversity. Coogs from different cultures and countries comprise the campus community making UH the second most diverse public research university in the country. Now, faculty, staff, students, and alums have an opportunity to celebrate their association with the University and share their stories. All Cougars are invited to share stories, strengths and personal attributes that connect them to UH. The challenge is to encapsulate these thoughts in either one word or 140 characters or less. These reflections can be shared through the #IAmUH form.

MLK Celebrations

The Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Commemorative Celebration is an opportunity for the University of Houston community to celebrate and reflect on the legacy and life of civil rights leader Dr. King. We gather during this time to memorialize the work and accomplishments of one of the most prominent African American leaders in modern history.
