Transcript A Letter From Hie Dtek Ori Editor's Note: This was a letter distributed to faculty and staff on April 22,1992 by Chancellor Schlit. The letter told the UH community that the Board of Regents approved that James Pickering become UH president. This decision came after the death of President Marguerite Ross Burnett. Dear UH Faculty and Staff: T I oday the UH System JLBoard of Regents approved my recommendation to extend for two years James H. Pickering's appointment as chief administrative officer of the University of Houston, changing his title from Acting President to President. Anational search will be initiated, probably in fall 1993, for a new president to assume office in September 1994. Jim, of course, is encouraged to become a candidate if he so chooses. There is no need for me to share with you the reasons why the Regents and all of us in the system administration continue to have the high- estconfidenceinjim'sablelead- ership. His abilities, his knowledge of UH, and his commitment to your continued success are well known on campus. I did think it advisable, however, to explain why we settled on this timetable for seekingapermanentpresident. The entire system is completingworkonits second six-year plan (1994-1999) in an environment pressuring us to render more services to more people with relatively fewer resources than everbefore. Jim has led UH's participation in this planning process, which has required all of us to rethink what we are doing, how we are doing it, and for whom. What makes out job even more challenging is that we must produce results in a very short time. As some of you know, we are currently respondingtoamandatefrom state government that we tie our 1993budget requests-due this August-to thoroughly articulated goals, strategies, and performance targets. In other woids,planningmustbe translated into budgets in a way quite new to us...and to Texas stategovernmentgenerally No one is sure how workable this changewillbeorhowfar-reach- ing its implications for our work. So the next 12 to 18 months promise to be fast- paced and unsettling. We believe it will be more constructive to begin the search when the candidates (we have) a clearer understanding of what the university must cope with in the coming years. Speaking personally, I have benefited greatly form Jim's experience and judgement during these last few months. Knowingthatwecan all continue to rely on Jim during the difficult times ahead is reassuring. Reassuring, too, is my confidence that the entire UH and UH System community will continue to advance this institution as a premier research and teaching university, despite formidable difficulties ahead. The people of our city and state rely on our success. After the death of President Barnett, Chancellor Schilt appointed James Pickering, president. At his first commencement ceremony as president, Pickering sat with commencement speaker Texas Gov. Ann Richards. Photo by Thomas Nguyen. 0 Alexander F.
