Building Champions for Life

Chris Pezman

Vice President for Intercollegiate Athletics

Dear friends of Houston Athletics:

During the 2018-19 academic year, we saw Houston student-athletes win national championships, bring home six American Athletic Conference Championships and set countless records in the classroom. With your help, we will continue to create these life-changing opportunities for UH student-athletes as we advance our mission of Building Championships for Life. Not only do your contributions help our student-athletes and coaches succeed on the playing field, but they play a vital role in helping Houston provide an outstanding student-athlete experience.
