UH to request funds for new Katy campus
UH has plans to request more funds from the state in order to build a new Katy campus, as reported in the Houston Chronicle.
The school plans to ask the Texas Legislature for a total of $58 million in tuition revenue bonds. However, the state has not approved funds for UH since 2006.
“The Katy area is easily recognized as one of the fastest growing in the region, if not the state, if not the country,” said associate vice chancellor for the UH System at Sugar Land and Cinco Ranch Richard Phillips, as reported in the Chronicle.
“The Cinco Ranch Teaching Center has served a good purpose, but its location and its size is not ideal.”
If the state disapproves the request, one of the school’s alternatives would be to team up with HCC and share a location in the Katy area.
