Proudly located at One Main Street in the heart of America's most diverse city, the University of Houston-Downtown serves a student population that is as vibrant as the city it calls home. Both a federally designated Hispanic-Serving Institution and Minority-Serving Institution, UHD reflects the city in both its student populations and in its passion to build a better community.
Driven by its mission to provide strong academic and career preparation as well as life-long learning opportunities in an inclusive community dedicated to integrating teaching, service and scholarly research, the university is an ideal partner for private, family and corporate foundations that seek to motivate positive change.
UHD's low cost to attend, and broad network of community partners means that foundation funding can do more at UHD, while innovations in student success and support, community engagement and curriculum development place this university at the forefront of tackling the challenges of a dynamic education marketplace.
As we work to build our relationships with foundations looking to make a difference in Houston and around the world, those who are interested in learning more about partnering with UHD may contact the office of Corporate and Foundation Relations.
