Urban Experience Program

The Urban Experience Program (UEP) provides opportunities for the university's diverse student population by preventing minor obstacles from becoming major setbacks to degree achievement. The services that UEP offers have been strategically chosen to develop UEP students into well trained career professionals.

Diamond Family Scholars

A $17 million gift from Houston philanthropists Andy and Andrea Diamond will be used to offer financial, academic, mentoring and other support for students aging out of the foster care system.

All students are welcome to receive the benefits and services of our program. UEP members come from a variety of socio-economic, gender and cultural backgrounds. These students include those who have aged out of foster care (PALS), low-income underrepresented, first-generation, DACA, UH honors students and seniors entering the workforce after college.
