Greetings from Dr. Robert McPherson
Though the calendar tells us it’s fall, it’s still hard to believe how quickly our semester is moving. This is our first year as an institution of the University of Houston, and so far we’ve been firing on all cylinders and moving at a Tier One pace. It’s our goal to provide innovative opportunities to our students (nearly 3,000 this semester) and to our region.
Behind every successful student is a role model teacher. Read about our Tier One faculty, like Monika Zarzycka from our Digital Media program who was named a Woman of Distinction at the Graph Expo & Print 2016 Annual Conference.
Be sure to read all about the News happening at UH Sugar Land.
And the spring and summer sessions promise more growth and more opportunities to serve our students and our region. The University of Houston Sugar Land is preparing to welcome new and innovative programs—a new biotechnology program, virtual reality tools used in simulation labs, and a unique post-baccalaureate certificate. Stay tuned!
Additionally, we’re preparing to break ground on a new 150,000-sq.-ft. classroom building that will house College of Technology programs, as well as health, business and education programs.
In her Fall Address, UH President Renu Khator challenged us to go beyond what we believe our limits are and expect excellence. It’s a good time to be at UHSL.
Best wishes on the rest of your semester!
Robert H. McPherson
Interim Associate Provost, Academic Affairs & Operations
