Transcript WBBmm*m£ma^mmm What Kind Of Neighbors: ? Paul Moore, UH's Vice- Chancellor For Student Affairs. Since the end of World War II, the University of Houston has experienced a positive trend of growth, expansion and development while much of the surrounding community has experienced a different type of change. At UH, new buildings have sprung up to serve the increasing number of students who seem hardly to notice the beautiful fountains and numerous sculptures as they walk between class. Across Scott Steet, in the neighborhood that has come to be known as the Third Ward, many of the buildings are win- dowless, boarded up, empty. The people are plagued by crack houses that operate almost unmolested by the city's police. The streets are full of potholes, and garbage piles up in vacant lots. Many of the children drop out of school before they are old enough to realize its importance. While UH seems to have largely ignored its neighbors, in recent years concerns about the institution's image, and its ability to get students to live on campus have focused some attention on Third Ward's problems. It has become obvious that those problems are affecting UH, and administration officials have taken an interest in improving some of those conditions. But many Third Ward residents view UH's concern with mistrust and suspicion. Social and economic factors that have historically divided the two entities today present formidable obstacles to the establishment of a working relationship. UH seems faced with the question: What kind of neighbors are we? Paul Moore, Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs, said that UH is very interested in devel oping better communications with the surrounding community. "We are always looking for opportunities to improve conversation. The real issue is probably, have we had enough to produce the optimum relationship? And the answer, I think, is no. But I believe that there is an interest and a will to improve that." As a sociologist at Texas Southern University, Dr. Robert Bullard is familiar with attitudes held by Third Ward residents. He said, "Many people don't see any relationship between the University of Houston and the community. They know that UH is on the other side of Scott Street, but Scott Street is a line of demarkation and we all know it." Unnecessary Friction: One of the reasons this line of demarkation exists is economic. According to the 1980 census, more than 50 percent of the households in the three census tracts bordering UH on Scott Street had an annual income of 80
