Dear Faculty, Staff, and Students:
I am pleased to share with you exciting news about our 2015 Spring Commencement. Please join me in welcoming our guest speaker, Oscar-winner and native Texan, Matthew McConaughey. From small town boy to international superstar, Matthew worked his way to the top with grit, courage, and determination. He has spent more than two decades entertaining us on the silver screen and will no doubt engage us with both amusing stories and sage advice.
The University is thrilled to host our first commencement ceremony in TDECU Stadium. The new venue will allow us to achieve our goal of hosting a university-wide commencement ceremony and will unite the Cougar family in celebration of our accomplishments together. This momentous occasion marks the beginning of many future graduation events in our stadium, and promises to deliver academic recognition, celebration, and tradition.
Join me to salute the class of 2015 on May 15 at 7 p.m. Ticket information and details will be forthcoming soon. Please save the date as we look forward to beginning new University of Houston traditions together!
Paula Myrick Short
