Education. Research. Service. Three words that describe the mission and goal of the University of Houston, one of the nation's premiere metropolitan research and teaching institutions.

With 32,296 students in 14 colleges, offering 279 undergraduate, graduate and professional degrees, Houston ranks in the top 1 percent in the nation for its student enrollment size and is 12th in the nation for its international student enrollment. The university's outstanding faculty and facilities located so near to one of the nation's most vibrant and expansive cities draws students from around the city, the state, the nation and the globe.

The University of Houston campus incorporates 548 acres of parks, fountains, plazas, sculptures and recreational fields surrounding modern classroom, laboratory and study facilities. UH public service and community activities, such as cultural offerings, clinical services, policy studies and small-business initiatives, serve a diverse metropolitan population. Likewise, the resources of the Gulf Coast region complement and enrich the university's academic programs, providing students with professional expertise, practical experience and career opportunities.

UH offers a broad-based liberal arts undergraduate curriculum to a student body with ever-increasing average SAT scores. In addition, Houston's Honors College enrolls some of the most academically gifted students in the United States. Graduate and professional education programs enable students to develop a mastery of their chosen disciplines or professions.

Through these facilities, UH maintains creative partnerships with government and private industry, and the interdisciplinary research conducted breaks new ground in such vital areas as superconductivity, space commercialization, biomedical engineering, economics, education, petroleum exploration and virtual technology.

The University of Houston seeks to interact with and gain strength and direction from the city itself through outreach programs and partnerships, reaffirming the role of an urban university as an agent of 21st-century urban change and transformation. These outreach and service efforts reflect UH's commitment to the community and its link to the city of Houston.

A sampling of academic and research accomplishments at UH:

  • The university's superconductivity lab drew international attention when researchers discovered a compound that achieves superconductivity at temperatures higher than previously thought possible. This breakthrough led to the establishment of the Texas Center for Superconductivity at UH.

  • Graduate English students in the Creative Writing Program enjoy one of the few Ph.D.-level programs of its kind in the country. The program is ranked second by U.S. News & World Report out of 197 graduate creative writing programs surveyed.

  • Five of the top 50 cited physicists world-wide come from the College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics at UH according to the Institute for Scientific Information.

  • Studies reported at the American Educational Research Association rank the College of Education among the top schools of education in the country in research productivity. The College is also a two-time winner of the Association of Teacher Educators Distinguished Program in Teacher Education Award as the most innovative and effective teacher education program in the nation.

  • The UH Law Center's health law program, within the Health Law and Policy Institute is ranked the best in the nation while the Intellectual Property Law Institute is ranked seventh, according to a recent U.S. News & World Report survey.

  • Both undergraduate and graduate programs are available through the nationally ranked Conrad N. Hilton College of Hotel and Restaurant Management, the only school of its kind in the state.

UH excels through a wide array of academic and professional degree programs, a national research agenda, and a vast number of outreach programs. Approaching the next millennium, UH will expand and fortify its goals and continue to provide high-standard service to its students, the community and the general public.
