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

  • Update: Transition and Reopening

    As we approach the end of this tumultuous, pandemic-plagued semester, it’s only natural to wonder what awaits us this summer and fall.  While we cannot be certain of the future, we have to plan for it now – and we must do so based on the information available today and with the ability to alter the course should the circumstances change. With this in mind, I would like to offer you guidelines about the process and a timeline for our campus reopening.

  • President's Update: Legislature, Commencement, Fall Semester

    We are almost at the end of the academic year, and what a year it has been with the global pandemic, an economic downturn, issues related to social injustice and hate crimes. Even during these times, our UH community has continued to educate students, conduct research and serve the community.
