Goal 1: Student Success - University of Houston

Provide a Top Tier, Inclusive Educational Experience to All

A college education has long been a part of the American dream. Research shows college graduates earn more money, are more likely to own a home, have more joy and better health. Yet, too often, persons from low income and underserved communities are left out of the equation. Society wins when everyone can attain the dream of a high-quality college education.
