Prospective students who visit the University of Houston Law Center are understandably underwhelmed when they see the 40-year-old physical facilities of the campus. Built in an era when bare concrete walls were hailed as “innovative design,” the buildings that house our classrooms, offices and clinics leave much to be desired. A disconnect clearly exists between our heritage of academic excellence and the reality of our physical facilities many of which were significantly compromised by the substantial flooding that accompanied Tropical Storm Allison.
INSIDE THESE WALLS summarizes the Law Center’s commitment to bring our physical environment up to the high standards of our academic excellence. We are a top-tier law school, and we must provide our students and faculty with the upgraded facilities they deserve. Our long-term plan to renovate and expand the Law Center requires significant support from the private sector. The schedule included on the reverse side outlines opportunities for our alumni and friends to join this effort and permanently associate their names with this important initiative to ensure the future of the Law Center.
NAMED SPACES are a key part of our renovation effort. Specific areas of our campus are reserved for donors who support our mission, and all of them will be recognized INSIDE THESE WALLS with permanent plaques and signage. Each day, the support of these forward-thinking donors will be remembered amid properly designed environments that fully accommodate the needs of faculty, students and visitors.
