Welcome back Coogs! As we begin a new year and a new semester, I continue to be amazed at the accomplishments of our talented students, faculty, and staff.   I know 2020 will bring even more successes as we continue our pace towards greater prominence nationally and internationally as a university that “Dares to Dream” big.

Warm Regards,

Paula Myrick Short
Senior Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs, University of Houston Systemuh100
