Greetings From President Khator

Welcome to the University of Houston, where our students acquire the abilities and intellect that an increasingly global environment demands. Their success is our success, and nothing takes greater priority. As a Tier One public research institution and one of the country’s most vibrant and ethnically diverse universities, UH prepares the skilled workforce, accomplished leaders and innovative problem-solvers that are now essential for an enlightened and engaged community. Our University – Houston’s University – takes pride in its deep local roots and celebrates its transformation into a nationally competitive institution where energy, health care and the arts flourish and support our city’s reliance on those key enterprises.

— Renu Khator

  • Welcome Back, Faculty and Staff

    Another spring semester is underway, and I’m delighted to welcome you back from what I hope was a wonderful winter break. I’m invigorated by the enthusiasm, intelligence and dedication I see around me everywhere on campus. You continue to improve our University every day and, for that, I thank you all.

  • UH Closes for Day of Mourning; Finals Continue

    Governor Greg Abbott has issued an executive order designating Wednesday, Dec. 5, as an official Day of Mourning for our 41st president, George H.W. Bush. In keeping with his order, the University of Houston will be closed – however, all scheduled final exams and other essential activities will continue. Only essential staff as designated by division vice presidents are expected to report for work. Essential staff will be allowed another day off for observance within the week.
