Transcript I•N•V•E•S•T•I•T•U•R•E M•A•K•I•N•G history ALLEGRA BRIMMER Members of Zeta Phi Beta perform at the reception to welcome Smith as the first Chancellor/President. There were many performances including a band. Photo by Mark Lacey From its beginning roots, the University of Houston System has labeled the chief executive officer of each university "president" while assigning the title of chancellor to the CEO of the system. However, Nov. 14 celebrated the beginning of a new era with the investiture of Arthur K. Smith as UH's first combined UH president and UH System chancellor. The ceremony, which took place in the Cullen Performance Hall, was planned by staff, faculty and students from all four UH universities and chaired by Dr. Charlotte Tate, vice president of academic programs. "The ceremony was special because it marked a historical change in the governance of the University of Houston System," said Tate. The investiture began with a musical prelude and a procession to Cullen Performance Hall from the UH Hilton Hotel. The procession consisted of delegates from other institutions of higher learning and societies, faculty and administrators from the four UH universities, past presidents and chancellors and Smith. All in the procession wore either bachelor's, master's or doctoral gowns. Presentation of the insignia of office was given to Smith by his wife, June, and UH System Board of Regents Eduardo Aguirre Jr. Smith was also given a medallion containing the UH official seal. After the presentation of the medallion, Smith gave his investiture address to the audience. He explained certain challenges he will encounter and various goals he has set to accomplish in the future. Smith said that one challenge that confronts UH and many other public universities is that demands and needs are growing more rapidly than the resources available to meet them. In response, Smith set as a goal the need to determine the best mixture of graduate and undergraduate students for each institution's mission, and allocating resources to best serve the needs of the students. Smith also touched on the topic of affirmative action in his speech, stressing a great need for its implementation and continuance in the UH System. He added that education is "critical to the economic health and social welfare of our nation." November
