Oct. 14, 2015 – UH President and Systems Chancellor Renu Khator noted in her annual fall address Wednesday that a new facility for the Law Center is "badly needed" and "on the drawing board."
"We have completed a feasibility study and hope that philanthropy will help us realize this project," she said in a wide-ranging, state-of-the-university speech. "We know that a new facility is not only badly needed, but is also critical to enhancing the national competitiveness of the UH Law Center."
Khator highlighted a number of successes, including higher SAT/ACT scores for admitted freshman and increased enrollment while noting that UH proves an emphasis on greater diversity and educational excellence can coexist.
As part of the program, state Rep. Armando Walle, a 2015 graduate of the UH Law Center, passed along congratulations from the Texas House of Representatives and Senate on the university's recent recognition as a Phi Beta Kappa chapter. Walle also commended Law Center Dean Leonard M. Baynes for his accomplishments during his first year at the helm of the law school.
