Academics @UHV

The goal of the Academic Affairs department at UHV is to provide up-to-date information on the exciting developments occurring on campus. The faculty, staff, and students are actively involved in numerous projects and initiatives, which the department believes is important for the community to know. The department aims to ensure that this information is effectively communicated to the communities in Victoria, Katy, and the surrounding areas, as these communities are essential to the institution's mission. As readers peruse the newsletter, they will gain insight into how the university's efforts impact the surrounding community and contribute to making the world a better place. The department encourages readers to engage with the content by responding to stories and participating in activities and discussions.
