Welcome to the University of Houston-Downtown!

Throughout my career in higher education, I've been fortunate to serve institutions driven by talented people with the shared vision to educate and graduate successful students. In April of last year, I had the privilege of joining UHD, which definitely fits this description.
When I arrived at UHD, it didn't take long to see that the University is a reflection of the city of Houston. As one of the most diverse institutions in the nation, UHD offers students perspective and a transformative, high-quality education that is flexible, affordable and close to home.
Programs in business, education, and public service, as well as the humanities, arts, sciences and social sciences, integrate real-world experience with a degrees that employers value, positioning students for rewarding careers when they graduate.
Whether you're visiting the UHD website as a prospective student, faculty or staff member, or whether you're just exploring your options, I am confident you will see ample evidence of our commitment to our students and the vibrant city around us.
If you haven't visited our campus in the heart of downtown Houston, I encourage you to do so. Experience UHD firsthand and discover what makes this institution special for its students and our community.
