About the Study
In collaboration with the UH Alumni Association, the UH for Life study aims to become the first comprehensive prospective panel study to examine quality of life among graduates from the University of Houston. UH for Life is a first-of-its kind, multi-year panel study of UH alumni to measure and assess multiple dimensions of quality of life among graduates from one of the most diverse universities in the United States. Data from this study will provide valuable insights that can facilitate robust and mutually beneficial interactions between UH alumni and UH and contribute to the quality-of-life literature.
Findings from quality-of-life studies can provide key insights into the objective and subjective vitality of individuals, households, communities, and societies. Comprehensive data are scarce and an understanding of quality of life at a population level is limited. The UH for Life study can bridge this gap by collecting and analyzing data that examines the contexts in which UH alumni live, work, pray, and play. Findings from this study can help scientists, policymakers, and community leaders advocate for public policies to reduce inequalities and improve and preserve the quality of life for everyone.
