Transcript Dr. Philip G. Hoffman President 108 President Hoffman "Keeping the University of Houston deeply involved in state, regional and national concerns rather than in a vacuum" is one of the many responsibilities of President Philip G. Hoffman. Dr. Hoffman fulfills this responsibility through membership in various college associations, through numerous social engagements and through substantial travel in the best interests of UH. The President's main concern, however, is maintaining reasonable control while encouraging permissiveness. "I think that in my job the im- fcc a o C O Oh Praises Growth, Student Involvement portant thing is to ... create an atmosphere in which the students, faculty and administrators can be creative and effective." Among the factors the President must deal with in attaining this ideal atmosphere is student power. "I am not in favor of the word 'power' because it identifies with class." Dr. Hoffman feels that power must be earned by the individual rather than by class. "There has, however, been a steady increase of responsible student involvement and participation and I wel come this." He is for student influence and believes that students may often have better insights into issues which directly concern them. "I have great respect for student opinion— knowledge of it is frequently instrumental in shaping a decision." President Hoffman also has great respect for the university he serves. "Although I am probably not the most objective person, when you consider what this university was ten or fifteen years ago, we have made more relative progress than any university that I know." 109
