The University of Houston is dedicated to providing “opportunities for student learning, discovery, and engagement…in a real-world setting.” Student learning and discovery are best accomplished through direct experience and reflection.  The Cougar Initiative to Engage (CITE) will increase the number of high-impact co-curricular activities that provide direct real-world experience, preparing students for success in their lives and careers upon graduation. CITE will also increase the number of UH students participating in co-curricular activity as part of their undergraduate education. CITE is an opportunity to have a truly transformative impact on students and the broader university community. See co-curricular learning activities previously and currently funded by CITE.
