Innovation

We are innovatively meeting the needs of students and the community in the School of Arts and Sciences.

  • UHV received two Department of Defense grants totaling $603,000 for research into human/robot interaction and the integration of robotics and virtual reality. The funding was used to purchase equipment and will help pay four student research assistants for three years.
  • The Downtown Arts Series, featuring presentations about groundbreaking art practices and discussions about the arts, started as part of the new UHV Center for the Arts. The 5,500-square-foot center in downtown Victoria houses art and design classes; Chax Press, an innovative, small literary press; and the university’s second Computation & Advanced Visualization Engineering, or CAVE, lab.
  • UHV began offering its first dual credit course through a partnership with St. Joseph High School. High school students from the school taking an “Introduction to Creative Writing” course had the option of earning college credit.
