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

    As we close out the year, I am in awe of you and grateful for the comeback we have had. The pandemic has been very challenging for all of us. Thanks to the COVID-19 vaccine and your determination to make it happen, we made the full return to campus with success. We’re back!

  • End of the Semester Update for Faculty and Staff

    We started the semester with cautious optimism that we could fully return to campus with success. And thanks to the COVID-19 vaccine and your precautionary actions, we accomplished that goal. Thank you for helping make this vision a reality and for giving our students the immersive experience they deeply missed.
