Transcript ;.« <».», ssi _|| IMAGINE ... UH IN THE YEAR2015 While the University of Houston System attempted to reorganize, interim Chancellor Bill Hobby appointed several committees to tackle a more long-term problem. Hobby's "Vision Commission" was created to find a vision for what UH will be, and its place in the city of Houston, in the year 2015. "We are asking the commission to perform a difficult task," Hobby said in a release announcing the commission. "It must imagine the urban environment in 2015, and the position UH should occupy in that environment, if it is to fulfill its potential." The commission will not be working with the Reorganization Task Forces, whose job is to determine the best relationship between the System, UH and the other three universities, Hobby said. "Those are two unrelated efforts," he said in an interview. "What the organizational review is about is basically whether there is a chancellor or a president. That is not important to the (Vision) Commission. It's not a matter of cosmic importance." The commission was originally made up of 19 members, but already faced its first setback with the death of Barbara Jordan. No decision on attempting to replace Jordan has yet been made. As System Spokeswoman Wendy Adair put it, "How do you replace Barbara Jordan?" Even without Jordan, the lineup of commission members is impressive. It is chaired by Kenneth Lay, chairman and chief executive officer of Enron Corp. and a former chairman of the UH Board of Regents. ■ j g^ w* q w a r% W%{\ I UTf been president of three universities and ii \Jt>t> I ArrUIn I 9 is currently president of the National 18 MEMBERS TO BE UH PSYCHICS Members of the commission are: *Maj.
