An Opportunity to Give Thanks and Celebrate Service Excellence

As we enter the season of giving thanks and the multitude of upcoming festivities with colleagues, friends and family, it is an especially timely and fitting reminder for us all to reflect on our core mission of Service Excellence — within the context of gratitude and appreciation for every one of you throughout the Administration & Finance Division.

Your individual commitment to our collective success and support of the University of Houston across the campus community shines through on every level each and every day.

From UH's recent No. 10 ranking in the Top 25 Safe Campus Summit to the UH “Landmark” recognition at the Mayor’s Proud Partners Awards, your work is making a difference and being honored throughout our community and beyond.

On behalf of the leadership team, I thank you all for embodying service excellence in all that you do — and wish you all a very blessed Thanksgiving season!

Best regards,

Jim McShan
Senior Vice Chancellor and
Senior Vice President
