Transcript U n i v e r s ty of H t n When is the future the present? When is the present the future? The University ot Houston is the answer to both questions. As a comprehensive urban research university, UH is the future of higher education in this country—and it is happening now. Two-thirds of Americans live in metropolitan regions; nearly 80 percent of Texans. By the year 2005, half of the world's population will live in cities. Comprehensive urban universities, like UH, located in the population centers of the world, are now meeting the needs and fulfilling the role that colleges and universities will continue to evolve toward as we enter the new millennium. UH is a traditional higher education institution that does what other such institutions do: discover, create, study and disseminate knowledge in all its forms. But, UH is also a citizen of the Houston metropolitan region, a member and partner in the community. The university carries out its fundamental roles of teaching, research and service by functioning within the context of the region's workforce and professional leaders, does research that works in tandem with the region's economic and social agenda, and provides opportunities and services to improve the quality of life for the region's citizens. But being of the future also means that the university never stands still; we must always be about change and progress. UH is striving toward a leadership role in urban higher education in this country, achieved through a number of steps which are currently being implemented to keep UH responsive to the evolving challenges of our urban mission: Houston is an international mecca. Thus, UH serves a diverse community of learners, including more nontraditional and underserved students. To meet the complex needs of this population, we have opened up educational opportunities through programs designed especially for commuting, minority and international students. A more student-centered environment with an improved sense of community and easier access to educational services creates a campus that is increasingly service- oriented and user- friendly. The main focus will always be on students and the learning process. Regional economic realities demand a college-trained work force. UH's role is to prepare you to compete. We must assure your success through graduation within a community-a place where people care about you. Educational excellence, insured by our qualin teaching in basic core curriculum courses, faculty development anc mentorship and upgradeo technology, are being strengthened continually Today's graduates and workers will likely change careen five times during their lives. UH has always realized the needs of life-Ion? learning and we will accelerate those initiatives, serving as the area's chief post-baccalaureate institution, stressing our programs of proven excellence and value to the region Collaboration is the key in the workplace of the future, and UH B stressing the work of its region's major economic and civic interdisciplinary centers, in such sectors, such as energy, space, environmental studies, high- medical and information performance computing and commercialization of our research, materials science that are keyed Our responsibility as citizens directly to future business and demands that we expand more and industry initiatives in this region, more into the community, and I mean More than ever, the Houston community in its largest configuration, through the expansion of student internship opportunities, creation of new interdisciplindary learning initiatives with universities around the glove, and vial the constantly expanding telecommunications technologies. I cannot stress enough how technology will alter the delivery and content of higher education. UH and other universities, too long institutions unto themselves, will be resource centers where students from around the world tune or log onto a television set or log onto the Internet to study with faculty region will depend upon the research members from a variety of Houstonian file photo innovations of our laboratories. Basic and applied research, a preeminent function of the university community, will stress productivity, specific outcomes and the transfer to institutions. This dovetails directly into one of my major educational priorities: internationalization of higher education. New technologies location in the nation's largest port, at the gateway to Latin America, UH will become a focal point for metropolitan universities around the globe. Now let me ask you, "What is your future?" You, UH's students are this university's real future because you are the future to this community. At least 70 percent of you will remain in the Houston metropolitan area to work and live; hopefully, you will continue to play an important role in what directions UH takes and how it continues to work hand-in-hand with the other constituents that make up this region. Your success and your contributions will be the success and contributions that create the future for UH and this city. I hope that as you build your own personal futures you will continue to ensure that your alma mater remains a leader in the building the future of Houston. -Glenn Goerke University of Houston President particular products or processes that expand these collaborations beyond relate to the urban economy and the traditional student and faculty society.
