Director of Facilities Information, Lillian Wanjagi

As Director of Facilities Information, Lillian Wanjagi�s job requires her to know the amount of classroom and office space that exists on campus and to provide that information to whoever requests it. She first joined the University of Houston in June 2007 and served for two years as senior project manager in facilities planning and construction. She was promoted to Director of Facilities Information in September 2009. Her responsibilities also include fielding requests regarding space assignments from those who wish to know what space is occupied or vacant.

Prior to coming onboard at UH, she served at the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board as program director in finance and resource planning. She�s currently pursuing her doctorate at UH in Education Leadership, and obtained an MBA from Gardner-Webb University in Shelby, North Carolina.

Besides working, one of her favorite activities includes attending Houston Dynamo home games and rooting for the team.

When asked what she likes most about her duties, she responded, �I enjoy knowing that the information we�re working on can assist the campus community in its decision-making process.� Wanjagi also actively participates in a classroom taskforce committee that is concerned with the quality of instructional space on campus.

She said, �I really enjoy working on campus wide-initiatives and am really excited to be at UH at this time in history, on the journey towards tier one.�
