Greetings From President Khator

Welcome to the University of Houston, where our students acquire the abilities and intellect that an increasingly global environment demands. Their success is our success, and nothing takes greater priority. As a Tier One public research institution and one of the country’s most vibrant and ethnically diverse universities, UH prepares the skilled workforce, accomplished leaders and innovative problem-solvers that are now essential for an enlightened and engaged community. Our University – Houston’s University – takes pride in its deep local roots and celebrates its transformation into a nationally competitive institution where energy, health care and the arts flourish and support our city’s reliance on those key enterprises.

— Renu Khator

  • Update: Big 12, Enrollment and Merit Increase

    We thought we would have a much more normal semester, but the spread of COVID-19’s Delta variant has made it a very anxious time once again. I thank you for persevering in face of physical, mental and emotional challenges. We are doing everything possible to add value to our students’ learning experience, and we can take satisfaction from that. Here is a quick update for you.

  • It's Official: UH is in the Big 12!

    Today is a monumental day in the trajectory of the University of Houston as we formally accepted an invitation to join the Big 12 Conference. While on the surface this decision impacts our athletics program, it truly is a transformational change for our institution. Our mission is about “connecting potential with opportunity” and today’s announcement is about just that.
