Dean’s Letter to Students

Dear Future Graduate,

Congratulations on your approaching graduation! What an exciting time! You will soon join over 224,000 UH alumni. Just as your family and friends share in the joy of your achievement, your UH family is also happy for you. The UH faculty and staff know that you will touch lives and bring excellence to whatever you pursue. As Dean of the College of Education, I want to say how proud I am of the accomplishments of the Spring 2018 graduating class. It has been an honor to serve you.

Let me also say thank you for entrusting the UH College of Education with the task of teaching, training, molding, and mentoring you in preparation for your future success. We hope that you celebrate your graduation milestone with us at both ceremonies.  You will receive important details about the graduation via email and can find more information on this page.
