Creativity. Collaboration.Transformation. Bold thinking and visionary leadership are hallmarks of the administrations of Provost Paula Myrick Short and Chancellor Renu Khator. At a time when educational institutions are downsizing and reducing support for the arts, these leaders have chosen to raise the arts to among the highest priorities at the University of Houston - placing the University center-stage in global arts education and scholarship.
In response, we are making the Kathrine G. McGovern College of the Arts the nation's first-choice public institution for innovative education and research in the arts. By supporting the Dean's Fund, you join as a partner in advancing our strategic priorities. From scholarships and fellowships for students, to support for programs and exhibitions in the Blaffer Art Museum and our schools, to funding for the recently launched McGovern College of the Arts Technology Center, your support is critical for providing the resources that we need to close the gap between our annual allocated funds and the real cost of making the College an international leader.
