Transcript The mural at the Riverside Terrace apartments on the corner of Calumet and Live Oak is just 5 minutes away from the University Park campus. Photo by Mark Lacy. UH administrator Dr. Bridges Alfred (B. A.) Turner at TSU. Our neighbor to the west was known up to 1951 as the Texas State College for Negroes, hence the si^n. Photo by Daniel Alder. While the university recognizes racism as a problem, Moore characterized those feelings as coming from outside the institution, and said that UH is interested in all kinds of students. "I think the university's view is that we are a university for Houston, and the state, and the nation, for that matter," said Moore. "That certainly includes the people who are our immediate neighbors. One of our important constituancies is minority people, but this is a university for all of the city, so I resist casting our mission in racial terms one way or another." Bullard also cited suspicion about UH's expansion policies as a factor that hurts UH's relations with its neighbors. "I remember the master plan they had drawn up," said Bullard. "They surveyed people and they sent out letters asking people, 'would you be willing to sell your property.' People almost went crazy," he said. "There is a master plan floating out there, and some of the people in this area have gotten wind of it through rumor or however. Generally when stuff comes out in bits and pieces it gets blown out of proportion, and people start bringing out their elephant guns when they may only be dealing with mosquitoes." Moore understands the community's sensitivity about encroachment. "It is my belief, based on what I have seen and how we have behaved, that this should not be an issue. We have defined some limits within which we would purchase land, and I think that plan is fairly well-known." Moore characterized the university's goals for its immediat- ed environment by saying, "we are interested in the development of more housing in close proximity to the university complex, and we are interested in the development of a commercial support base for the university. I don't think that requires concern on the part of nunc our neighbors about an ever- expanding, encroaching university." Fascinating Area: Texas Southern University provides an interesting contrast with UH in terms of community relations. Lede defined this difference in terms of the missions of the two institutions. She said,"TSU's focus is urban so they saw the urban community as part of their laboratory. I don't think (UH) saw themselves as that kind of university." Lede sees an added dimension to a university located in a community like Third Ward. She said, "Such an institution must play a key role in the community in which it is located." 83
