Transcript UH President Renu Khator celebrates the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching ranking of UH as a top tier institution. Courtesy of Thomas Campbell ONE STEP CLOSER By Daniel Renfrow UH reached a milestone this year as it became only the third public university in the state of Texas to be designated a Tier One research institution by the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching. This designation places UH in the ranks of the University of Texas at Austin and Texas A&M in College Station. Mark Smith, dean of the College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics, said the designation is a great step in the University's pursuit of flagship status, but there is still a long way to go. "I think in this economic time we have to worry about continuing to push for advancements. We need to push harder and be more creative," Smith said. "We need to make sure we are using our resources optimally." Chemistry professor Rigoberto Advincula said that in order for the University to continue on its path to excellence, UH administration and Texas must continue to lay a good foundation for the University. "Now is the time to establish good infrastructure. Not only physical, but actual core facilities, instrumentation, facilities that will allow researchers to try to do more work," Advincula said. "Now is a good time to ask what will be needed by the University to reach the next step." Advincula is one of the many contributors in research advancement at UH; he and his students focus on research in polymer and nano-materials and their application for semi-conductors. "The Tier One status gives recognition to what has been happening at the University of Houston for some time," Advincula said. "Tier One is somewhat of a cap on the feather of the University." Assistant Chemistry professor Vassiliy Lubchenko said the Tier One recognition draws attention to the groundbreaking work that has been happening at the University for some time. "Research is the only way to stay ahead," Lubchenko said. "We need a lot of long-term investment in academia." Mathematics and physics junior Thomas Markovich said he is excited and proud that the University was able to achieve such recognition, and he looks forward to what comes next. "I think its cool that we got Tier One status. It is a big step, but we will have more important steps later on," Markovich said. "I think the University of Houston has a very bright future." Assistant English professor Jennifer Wingard is currently working on a book that focuses on the city of Houston as a site of inquiry within the global economic and political discourses. She said UH's new Tier One research status will affect not only the University, but also Houston as a whole. "Houston is already known for the oil industry and the work of the medical center," Wingard said. "And even though it has a world-class arts community, highly regarded private universities and a historically black college, it is often overshadowed by Austin or Dallas as a site of artistic or intellectual community. "The development of the University of Houston as a Tier One school and the University's deep ties to Houston will help draw attention to the various successful communities Houston has to offer," Wingard said. "The University of Houston and its ties to the various communities around Houston will help to diversify Houston's image." [36] Inside the Pride
