Departments

A&F Services Assessment and Evaluation supports the Division's strategic goals and A&F S.P.I.R.I.T. by providing data and analytics that highlight the value of services for the UH community. The assessment and evaluation program supports the nine A&F departments with their annual assessments - assists in formalizing assessment plans, division-wide data collection (surveys, focus groups, and interviews), performs data analytics, and prepares assessment reports. Each year, the program hosts an annual assessment symposium to share with the campus community the value of assessment in making continuous service improvements.

Public Art of the University of Houston System (PAUHS) is a collection of public artworks by acclaimed local, regional, national and international artists, across all forms of media and styles. In 1966, the University of Houston’s Board of Regents voted to establish a policy that would dedicate one percent of the construction costs of all future building projects to acquire works of art. At the time, UH was undergoing an unprecedented construction boom, and the public art program was conceived to greatly enhance campus life as well as the prestige of the university at a local, regional and international level. In 1969, the state of Texas ratified the necessary legal framework for enabling the funding of public art from construction projects (currently not to exceed 1% of construction budgets). The University of Houston then became the first public university in Texas to formally adopt a percent for art program. Fifty years later, PAUHS has matured into one of the most impressive public art collections in the country, with nearly 700 objects on view throughout the University of Houston, University of Houston at Sugar Land, University of HoustonDowntown, University of HoustonClear Lake and University of HoustonVictoria. The scope of these projects has increased dramatically over time, and the collection continues to expand and mature through commissions, site-specific installations, temporary public art, purchases and gifts.
