UHD's Institutional Compass
The University of Houston-Downtown’s Institutional Compass sets a course for new levels
of success. This compass will serve as our directional guide as we steer the institution
toward four specific priorities. By strengthening justice, empowering student success
and equity, supporting institutional excellence and infrastructure, and reaching our
full potential as an anchor institution, UHD will create the standard of an urban
university that addresses the needs of higher education.
UHD is committed to reducing barriers that have traditionally impeded members of our region from accessing higher education, including financial, health, social and environmental disparities. Through our programs, policies, curricula and support, we must aspire to create a more just educational community focused on ensuring our diverse university population is equipped for success beyond our classrooms and well into the future.
