UHD Hosts Visits from Legislators, Leaders


By Mike Emery

Soon after reopening its doors following Harvey, the University of Houston-Downtown received an outpouring of support from Texas legislators and leaders. In September, UHD was visited by Sen. John Whitmire, Sen. Borris Miles, Rep. Carol Alvarado, and University of Houston System Chancellor Dr. Renu Khator.

Visitors were greeted by Dr. Juan Sánchez Muñoz, UHD President, and had the opportunity to visit areas of the One Main Building's first floor impacted by flood waters, tour campus, observe academic activities, and meet faculty, staff and students.

"I am grateful for the support of legislators and leaders, including John Whitmire, Borris Miles, Carol Alvarado and Chancellor Khator," said Muñoz. "Their recent campus visits reflect a deep interest in our University and our students. Their service to our state, city and University is immeasurable, and I look forward to hosting each of them again in the near future."
