Whos in charge? Where do I go for
help/information/complaints? Who are the faculty
and what do they do?

First, a Note on the Engineering Buildings
The Engineering complex consists of two main
buildings, connected by a walkway on the second
and third floors
  • Engineering Bldg. 1, also called Bldg. D (This
    is the south or the old Engr. Bldg., labeled
    as Bldg. 579 on campus maps).
  • Engineering Bldg. 2, also called Bldg. D3 (This
    is the north or the new Engr. Bldg., labeled
    Bldg. 581 on campus maps).

Examples W316-D3 (Prof. Wosik)
W122-D3 (our class)

A Note on the Engineering Buildings (cont.)
Note A room that begins with E or W is in
building D3. E means east of the main hallway, W
means west of the main hallway. A room that
beings with N or S is in building D. N means
north of the commons area, S means south of the
commons area.
Easy way to find north on campus look for the
architecture building (the one with the Greek
columns).

Top Organizational Structure (cont.)
The Board of Regents is the governing body of the
University of Houston System as authorized by the
Texas Legislature according to Section 111.11 of
the Texas Education Code.
The Board of Regents consists of nine members.
Each serves a six-year term. Every two years, the
Governor of the State of Texas, subject to Senate
confirmation, appoints three new members to the
Board of Regents.

Top Organizational Structure (cont.)
The Provost is the chief academic officer. The
Provost reports to the President for oversight of
all educational affairs and activities.
In addition to overseeing faculty hiring,
promotion, and tenure, the Provost works with
faculty to effect curriculum development. He
collaborates with other vice presidents to
integrate physical and technological innovations
in classrooms.
