Renu Khator, president of the University of Houston will deliver the President’s Fall Address on Wednesday, Oct. 10. She will look back at the many successes the University has achieved and share her vision for the future.
The address will begin at 10 a.m. in the Moores Opera House on the UH Campus.
Khator began the tradition of an annual fall address after assuming office in January 2008. Over the past year, there have been several notable accolades and accomplishments including:
- The University of Houston once again eclipsed its previous enrollment record, with a headcount of 46,355 students for fall 2018, an increase of 2 percent over last fall. It’s the fifth consecutive year the student population has grown at UH.
- The UH College of Medicine was established to focus on preparing primary care doctors to practice in underserved communities in Houston and across Texas, and ultimately improve health outcomes. It’s scheduled to admit 30 students in the inaugural class, pending state approval and federal accreditation.
- UH climbed 21 spots in the 2019 U.S. News & World Report rankings while seven UH graduate programs were ranked among the Top 50 programs in their disciplines.
- Energy Research Park, now the UH Technology Bridge, has shifted its focus to guiding emerging technologies to commercialization to help drive Houston’s growing innovation ecosystem.
- UH System broke ground on a new campus to serve the higher education needs in the Katy area. The 80,000-sq.-ft. building is expected to be completed by fall 2019.
