The University of Houston College of Medicine has been granted preliminary accreditation, a monumental milestone that allows the new medical school — the city of Houston’s first in nearly 50 years — to immediately begin recruiting and enrolling students. The first class of 30 medical students will begin July 20, each receiving $100,000 four-year scholarships through philanthropy to cover tuition and fees.
“Aspire Fund: The $50 Million Challenge,” is the single largest contribution to our “Here, We Go” campaign. The landmark $50 million commitment from an anonymous donor will be used to hire distinguished faculty and establish four new institutes that will address crucial challenges in the areas of energy, infrastructure, precision medicine and global engagement. The challenge is designed to inspire investments from other donors, making its total impact as much as $100 million.
The University of Houston has received a significant gift from The John M. O’Quinn Foundation to support the UH Law Center and construction of its new state-of-the-art building. In permanent recognition of the gift, the building will be named the “John M. O’Quinn Law Building.”
