The first public meeting of a committee working to make the University of Houston-Victoria a self-sustaining campus will be Tuesday.
The UH Sugar Land Transition Team is charged with developing a plan for UHV to become a destination university after the Sugar Land campus joins the UH system next year.
The UHV Work Group, chaired by Victoria native Charles Alcorn, is expected to share some of the work completed by the group's committees.
UHV became a four-year university in 2010 as part of the state's Closing the Gaps plan.
In February, the UH System Board of Regents approved the removal of UHV operations at the UH Sugar Land campus, which helps generate 53 percent of UHV's operating budget allocated for academic programs.
Dana Rooks, UH Sugar Land Transition Team executive director and UH System libraries dean, will provide updates from the team's work groups representing the UH System, UH main campus and UH-Clear Lake.
