Jim McShan's Retirement Tribute

In August, the University of Houston said farewell to Jim McShan as he retired from the position of Sr. Vice Chancellor/Sr. Vice President of Administration and Finance division at UH.
As much as he will missed, we also welcomed Raymond Bartlett as he was promoted into that position. We look forward to years of good leadership as he serves in that position now.

Whether you are showing symptoms or not, social distancing is an important part of flattening the curve. By practicing social distancing, the spread of COVID-19 can be dramatically slowed to prevent the healthcare system from reaching its maximum capacity, in turn, saving lives.
