HGI Team

The HGI team is comprised of members from the UH System Academic Affairs and Student Affairs units. The team focuses on planning and implementation of system projects targeting student success. System projects involve increasing the system and campus’ awareness of UH’s goals and outcomes, strengthening UH’s data infrastructure, reviewing policy levers, and promoting communication of key HGI messages throughout the UH System. The system team works in collaboration with campuses to collectively reach HGI’s completion goals.
