HOUSTON, TX - The University of Houston (UH) sits at 4800 Calhoun Rd, Houston, TX 77004, United States.

On such a large urban campus, they offer a wide range of undergraduate, postgraduate, and doctorate and continuing academic courses to their students.

UH is the center of advanced research facilities, graduates who have gone on to achieve international recognition, and one of the most multicultural student communities in the Houston region, making it one of the top institutions in the country. UH contributes a crucial part in boosting the growth of the economic sector in Houston and the state of Texas. They produce a yearly impact on the economy of $6.4 billion in Greater Houston and $7.7 billion in Texas.

Moreover, the Office of the Provost has several programs that support its core objective. Two of which are 50-in-5 and Cougar Initiative to Engage.
