About UHSL Message from the Associate Provost

The University of Houston Sugar Land is moving closer to its goals of becoming the Tier One choice for students in our region. Starting in spring 2017, there will be new offerings for students.

We are excited to welcome the College of Technology’s biotechnology program.  Directed by Professor Rupa Iyer, the biotechnology program is the first in the state of Texas that integrates bioprocessing, nanobiotechnology, bioinformatics and environmental biotechnology into an undergraduate curriculum.

Students wanting to pursue a liberal studies major will be able to enroll in Introduction to Liberal Studies this spring.  A common course to the ‘Triple Minor Major’ program, Intro to Liberal Studies is a ‘learning how to learn’ course and puts students on the path to earn either a Bachelor of Science or Bachelor of Arts degree.

Innovation is at the core of what the University of Houston does, so we are pleased to offer this new course: Innovation and Opportunity Development. This program (already valued in many corporations) teaches students to think differently, leading them to discoveries and the strategies to successful commercialization. 

Welcome to all these programs that will further our goal to reflect the vision and drive of the city where we reside.

We’re proud of our students and grateful to our supporters. We recently celebrated both at the 15th Annual Scholarship Banquet. Two students addressed the audience to tell their stories of personal and academic accomplishment, and of the importance of their scholarship support. Take a moment to read about Shay Ugoh and Rene Fenner.

…And watch this space for more news on additional programs coming to UH Sugar Land…and construction of our new building.

Happy New Year!

Interim Associate Provost of Academic Affairs and Operations
