In April Dr. Kathor, UH System Board of Regents Chair Jarvis Hollingsworth, Secretary W. Wilson, and Vice President for Community Relations and Institutional Access Dr. Elwyn Lee hosted two forums attended by approximately 30 key African-American opinion leaders from the greater Houston community and the Third Ward on UH’s main campus.

The forums focused on UH’s commitment to African-American students, faculty, and the surrounding community to be very informative.

One of the action items as a result of the forums is the creation of the UH Board of Visitors African American Caucus consisting of civic leaders (both alumni and non-alumni) to offer advice to the president about UH’s direction and its impact on the African-American community.

Other African American members on the Board of Visitors are:

Cheryl Creuzot, GHBC members and President and CEO, Wealth Development Strategies

William Granville, III, CEO and Managing Member, Granville Financial Group

Elvin Hayes, President, Legend Associates

Reverend William Lawson, Pastor Emeritus, Wheeler Avenue Baptist Church

Carl Lewis, President and CEO, Lewis Entertainment Group

Daryl Wilkerson, Vice President fo Support Services, University of Chicago Medicine
