A Message From the Provost
Dear UH Community,
May was indeed a month of memorable moments at the University of Houston. In recent weeks, we celebrated UH's nearly 6,000 spring graduates, honored our outstanding faculty members, and recognized so many other achievements at our institution.
Yes, it was a busy month, and a fitting close to the spring semester. Summer, however, will prove to be productive as well with classes resuming very soon and a flurry of activity taking place across campus.
In this edition of Cougar Milestones, we’ll recap just some of May’s highlights, and look ahead to other faculty, staff, and student accomplishments.
As always, thank you for making our University a truly special place, and one that is home to so many Cougar Milestones.
Paula Myrick Short
Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs and Provost
