UH Chancellor Renu Khator not showing up tells the whole story. Nothing is going to change for UHV while she's chancellor. All she believes in is UH-Main Campus. This was just a dog-and-pony show for the gullible.

I think that Dan Branch did a great job orchestrating this meeting. He deserves to be commended for providing adult leadership at an important time. What is disappointing is that UH Chancellor Renu Khator did not attend the meeting.
Good thoughts JLt. In the interim perhaps the city can take it's time and plan its own expansion. The land north of Loop 463 has prime annexation potential. A $10,000,000 taxpayer paid commitment to provide infrastructure to private property is a bit pricy. The ideal strategy (since time is not of essence) is to place the Mayor's proposal on the ballot for the citizen’s to decide who pays for infrastructure on private property. The bond’s approval could be almost assured if the landowner, the mayor and perhaps even UHS provide the voters enough information! Communication is what this is all about, not nuclear war.
Maybe now, the Vicad will become a little less instigating and do away with the header, "Changing Hands?" It is not a true concept. UHV is not changing Systems.
We will have to see if this ever happens. So many things need to be fixed. Increase/improved student housing, athletic facilities on campus for students and athletes, and even prep for the time when it would need a larger stand alone university. Yeah utilization is not there yet, but enrollment seems to be growing and you have to make plans....such as land.
