University of Houston System Announces Board Changes

Gov. Greg Abbott has appointed three new members to the University of Houston System Board of Regents as other members' terms expired. Doug Brooks, Joe Gutierrez and Jack Moore will serve six-year terms on the governing body that oversees the UH System. They join six other regent members and a student regent. Brooks is the retired chairman, president and CEO of Brinker International Inc. Gutierrez is an energy executive who co-founded NET Midstream and now serves as CEO of Novi Ventures. Lastly, Moore is the former chairman and CEO for Houston-based Cameron International Corp. He retired in 2015 after Schlumberger Ltd. purchased the company. The three new members are replacing Welcome Wilson Jr., who was the board's vice chairman and recently appointed to the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board; Spencer Armour III, who was the board's secretary; and Roger Welder.

University of Houston System Closes on Land for New Katy Campus

The University of Houston System has closed on the purchase of 46 acres for its new Katy campus, part of a larger mixed-use development. UH's 46 acres will be part of a 125-acre master-planned, mixed-use development, which the system and Parkside have rebranded as University Center. Parkside plans to begin designing and building University Center's infrastructure - including streets, utilities, lighting and landscaping - soon. UH initially plans to build an 80,000-square-foot facility, which currently is in the design phase. Construction is expected to begin in August 2017, and the campus should open in fall 2019. The UHS University Park campus initially is expected to serve 2,000 students, but the system's master plan includes 500,000 square feet of space, eventually accommodating 8,000 to 10,000 students.
