Transcript PHILIP G. HOFFMAN PRESIDENT During a decade as president of the University of Houston, Philip G. Hoffman has presided over many changes. The fabric of the university has been woven into a tapestry of multi-textured interests and purposes. "My job boils down to creating an atmosphere conducive to the functioning of the university." To create this conducive atmosphere, Hoffman works to understand the divergent demands of different influential sections of the university and to formulate a policy which does not alienate any of those sections. By striving to follow this essentially "consensus" philosophy, Hoffman has been vulnerable to charges of not doing the "right" thing and for ignoring less powerful sections of the campus community. "I do not have as much contact with the students as I would like to. It's regrettable, but on a campus of over 25,000 students, it is difficult to establish a one- to-one relationship. Even with over 4000 instructors, they are not getting the attention they deserve . . . The rights of the student are the same as the rights of any citizen. They must remain within the law." The university has become an integral part of the larger community in which it exists. People from UH influence the political, cultural, and social pattern of that larger community. Pres. Hoffman is hardly an exception. As a past member of the Houston Research Institute and present member of such civic organizations as the National Space Hall of Fame Foundation and the Houston Symphony Society, the UH president has proven an example of civic awareness. In order for the president of a state school to be effective, he must be acutely aware of the opinions of those residing outside the educational community, such as legislators, who exert great power over the school. It is in this province that President Hoffman excels. Making frequent trips to Austin, the UH president and his staff carefully ascertain the position of the Texas legislature on various school issues. The continued existence of Dr. Hoffman and his staff speaks for their proficiency in this area. 243
