Name: University of Houston Self Study


Historical Note:

Founded in 1927 as the Houston Junior College, the institution became a four-year university in 1934 and changed its name to the University of Houston. Following the World War II, enrollment at UH reached record numbers due to returning veterans and the GI Bill. Enrollment continued to increase throughout the 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s. Increased enrollment necessitated more classroom and laboratory space as well as additional faculty and staff.

The University of Houston conducts a self-study in accordance with the requirements of the Commission on Colleges and the National Collegiate Athletic Association. Traditionally they take place over a two year period and involve a broad cross-section of faculty, staff, and administration of the University. These studies are comprehensive and analytical in nature with the goal of identifying both the strengths and weaknesses of the university and to make recommendations to improve the performance of the institution.
