Carl Lewis to Address UH Class of 2020


He is an Olympian, ambassador, role model, coach, “Athlete of the Century”, UH alumnus and activist.  Carl Lewis is all of this and so much more. Join us on Thursday, December 17 at 7:00 p.m. at the virtual University-Wide Commencement ceremony as he addresses the UH Class of 2020.  Sharing his wealth of life experiences, the opportunity to hear Mr. Lewis speak will be one to remember. 


University Commencement Announcement

The University of Houston will confer degrees in a virtual University-Wide Commencement ceremony on Thursday, December 17, which includes spring 2020, summer 2020 and fall 2020 graduates.  Following this ceremony select colleges will host virtual celebrations.

We acknowledge the disappointment and dissatisfaction that the postponement of an in-person commencement ceremony has caused our graduates this year. We are committed to inviting graduates back to a future, in-person ceremony when it is safe to do so.
