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.

We discover. We imagine. We inspire. We dare.

— Renu Khator

  • Interim Provost and Updates

    With the midsummer heat upon us, it is hard to believe that we will be welcoming our students back to campus for the fall semester in just a few weeks.

  • Update: $50 Million Gift, Accolades and Provost Search

    Congratulations and thank you on another successful academic year! Last week, we graduated nearly 6,000 students in multiple ceremonies thanks to you! These graduates are special because in order to graduate they had to climb over the COVID-19 mountain and deal with enormous unpredictability. Needless to say, they could not have made it to the finish line without your guiding hand. Once again, thank you for everything you do every day for our students and our university.

  • Journey to the Top 50

    Last year, we announced the University of Houston’s bold, new vision to become a Top 50 public university. We knew that achieving this goal would not be easy. No. It would challenge us to stretch to a higher level … to think in ways that we’ve never thought before – and that’s exactly why we made it our vision.
