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

  • Flexibility, Support & Compassion

    Once again, the people of Houston showed their resilience in the midst of horrible flooding. Some of you had homes flooded. Others had cars damaged or were stuck in traffic for hours on freeways trying to get home or to your children’s schools. What a helpless feeling! It’s unbelievable how quickly much of our city can come to a standstill.

  • Welcome Back, Faculty and Staff

    Our FY2019-20 has started with a bang: first, the ceremonial signing of the bill to create the UH College of Medicine, followed by the announcement of the largest gift in the University’s history, and then the announcement of funding for the new UH Law Center building.
