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.

We discover. We imagine. We inspire. We dare.

— Renu Khator

  • Caring for Our Community

    The news of the second death on our campus hit us all so very hard this week. As president of the University of Houston, and as a mother who once sent her daughters off to college, hoping for the best, this truly breaks my heart.
