Transcript "The 1973-1974 academic year was among the more significant in the recent development of the University of Houston. If space permitted, I would prefer to list many more of the important events during the past I 2 months. Since this is to be a concise summary, let me concentrate on the following: The funding of the new campus of the University of Houston at Clear Lake City, and the first full semesters of operations for the University's Victoria Center. " An emerging new maturity within the student body evidenced especially by a restructuring of relationships between the Student Senate and the University Council, and other key organizations within the campus community. • The administrative reorganization of the College of Arts and Sciences, which had come to have far too many departments and students for maximum efficiency, and the discontinuance of the Graduate School, with its functions to be reassigned to other offices and instructional units. The University of Houston at Clear Lake City, an innovative institution directly tied to the 10 community colleges in the area, begins classes this fall as construction accelerates on its beautiful 500—acre campus adjacent to some of the most attractive natural settings in this entire area. It and the Victoria Center are key elements in the ongoing development of the University of Houston as a system of regional campuses. Part of a major national trend, the new spirit of far wider participation by students in various aspects of the governance of the University was a valuable and heartening factor in the institution's growth during 1973- 1974. Time and again, the leaders of student government and their fellow students made constructive contributions that were of marked value to me personally and to the University of Houston. The reorganization of the College of Arts and Sciences into Colleges of Humanities and Fine Arts, Social Sciences and Natural Sciences and Mathematics will clarify administrative leadership and direct accountability for instruction. Smaller and more natural groupings of departments should aid also in our primary mission, the provision of increasingly better teaching at every level in our institution." — President Philip G. Hoffman President University of Houston
