It is a pleasure to welcome you to the University of Houston academic community. I first joined the University of Houston twenty-nine years ago as a young professor in the economics department. Since that time, I have seen UH grow into a world class center for learning and research.
It is my commitment to make the University of Houston the leading urban university in the country. We are building new classrooms and dorms. We are building new academic programs in the arts, business, engineering, humanities, and science. UH is evolving into a destination for all students who want to experience a vibrant urban lifestyle while learning to compete in the global marketplace.
I hope to see you at graduation.
