As the slogan for our campaign says, “Here, We Go!”

And in keeping with that theme, here we go into August, which at UH means: here we go into another great season of alumni engagement! I hope you’ve taken the time to look at our schedule in this month’s “Happenings” to see where you can become involved with your college and our various constituent alumni associations.

We are very excited to be launching ourselves into a new five-year strategic plan, which includes some new initiatives, strengthening established initiatives and the introduction of a new Young Alumni Association. We are very excited to be focusing on the generation of University of Houston graduates who have been with us since President Khator took the helm in 2008.

We also are dedicated to strengthening our programs to make sure you have what you need to be engaged, no matter when you graduated.

I hope you’ll join us at one of our annual meetings or take part in our travel program. Please be sure to send us all of your class notes. Our new website will have a page that contains all class notes, so you can keep up with the great accomplishments of your fellow alumni!

You’ll also see at the top of this page, that your new alumni card number is here! Please be sure to download your alumni card onto your phone, or better yet, download the UH Alumni Association App through the App Store. You can keep your alumni card saved on the App! You’ll need it to join us at Party On the Plaza when football season begins at TDECU Stadium on September 7th.

On behalf of everyone at UHAA, our staff, our UHAAF Board of Directors, and everyone who makes up our alumni population of nearly 300,000, I hope you have a great end of the summer months. “Here, We Go!”

True We’ll Ever Be,

Mike Pede
