    The University of Houston was founded in 1927. Acreage was acquired for a permanent campus in 1936, and the first building, the Roy Gustav Cullen Memorial Building, opened in 1939. UH public service and community activities, such as cultural offerings, clinical services, policy studies, and small-business initiatives, serve a diverse metropolitan population. Likewise, the resources of the Gulf Coast region complement and enrich the university's academic programs, providing students with professional expertise, practical experience, and career opportunities. In fact, more than 84 percent of our students secure career-level jobs within three months of graduation.

    UH has awarded more than 200,000 degrees, and approximately 75 percent of our alumni remain in the Houston area. UH offers 109 bachelor's, 131 master's, 51 doctoral, and three special professional degree programs through the university's 12 colleges. The university awards more than 6,500 degrees annually. UH is the most ethnically diverse research university in the nation. The 35,180 students enrolled in fall 2004 were 39.5 percent white, 18.7 percent Asian/Pacific Islander, 18.1 percent Hispanic, 13.0 percent African American, 8.1 percent International, 0.4 percent Native American, and 2.2 percent unknown; 75 percent undergraduate and 25 percent postbaccalaureate, graduate, and professional; 48 percent male and 52 percent female; 89 percent Texas residents.

    Our 560-acre campus includes lush greenery, fountains, sculptures, and recreational fields surrounding modern classrooms, high-tech laboratories, and study facilities, and affords students a well-equipped setting for academic pursuits and proximity to the heart of the nation's fourth largest city. Campus landmarks include the Campus Recreation and Wellness Center, the Athletics/Alumni Center, the Moores School of Music, and the LeRoy and Lucile Melcher Center for Public Broadcasting, which houses KUHT-TV/HoustonPBS (the nation's first educational television station), KUHF-FM, the Center for Public Policy polling center, and television studio labs. The 191,730-square-foot Science and Engineering Research and Classroom Complex is set for completion in 2006 and promises unprecedented interdisciplinary cooperation within the sciences, with cutting-edge facilities for research and teaching.
