Transcript The President In his 15th year as president of the University of Houston, Dr. Philip G. Hoffman spearheaded the controversial Mission Self-Study deliberations which consumed most of the academic calendar and involved a large portion of the academic community. In an accompanying comment to the final Mission Self-Study report released in January, Hoffman reviewed his role in the preparation of the documents. "As chairman of the Steering Committee, I have had the gratifying opportunity to view the progress of Mission Self-Study as it developed. During the ultimate stages of the preparation of this Final Report, and particularly during the extensive deliberations on the evaluation of academic programs, I have temporarily assumed a less active role as chairman than was previously the case. This limited involvement was intentional, in order that I might have a detached, and more independent, perspective in the vital task of weighing the final recommendations I must make to the Board of Regents." Following the acceptance of the report by the regents with his final recommendations, Dr. Hoffman was praised for his diplomatic approach to the study and his qualifications of several troublesome aspects of the plan. Dr. Philip G. Hoffman served UH as vice president and dean of faculties prior to his appointment as president in 1961.
