Mission: The School of Human Sciences and Humanities (HSH) offers the individualized attention that is the hallmark of small, liberal arts colleges along with the varied course offerings and research opportunities afforded by large universities in a nurturing, respectful environment. HSH is committed to the strongly held values of honoring diverse populations, fostering global perspectives, and promoting justice. HSH is built on excellent teaching, rigorous research, and faithful service to our students, colleagues, university, professions, and our community. We honor our history as an upper-division institution by encouraging transfer students in the pursuit of their educational goals as we reach out to new students through innovative four-year degree plans. We provide strong graduate programs that serve the needs of traditional and non-traditional students through expert advising, interdisciplinary options, and multiple modes of instruction. The five divisions of the School explore the multiple facets of the human condition. Through 15 undergraduate and 15 graduate programs, HSH develops our students’ critical-thinking, creative, and communication skills. The School’s reach extends to the two satellite campuses at Sugar Land, Pearland, and the student population at the Texas Department of Criminal Justice facility in Rosharon, Texas. We serve the Clear Lake community through our various Centers, the UHCL Art Gallery, and our continuing education programs. Members of our faculty serve their disciplines and their professions through their contributions of scholarship and professional service at the highest levels.

HSH's own Karen Fiscus is at it again!  Her support of the Empty Bowls Houston project is inspiring!

HSH's own Karen Fiscus is at it again! Her support of the Empty Bowls Houston project is inspiring!

We have SO MANY incredible artists that make and donate bowls for our event. Today, we wanted to tell you about one of them ...

Karen Fiscus is a local artist/potter who lives in the Clear Lake area and she works at UH-Clear Lake Art Gallery. As you know, the event supports Houston Food Bank, and Karen has supported in a BIG way!

In 2012, local artist/wood artist/furniture maker Clark Kellogg came up with the idea to do a bowl challenge, where he would challenge himself to make a 100 bowls to benefit Empty Bowls Houston that year. Once he announced it, a few other artists decided to take the challenge as well, and one of those was Karen Fiscus.

She accomplished the goal that year…and amazingly, has done the same for six years in a row, and will do it again this year! That means that single-handedly, Karen has made and donated 700 bowls to Empty Bowls Houston! That is quite a dedication of time an talent, and when you consider that each of those bowls fetches $25 (and she always sells every single bowl!), she alone has helped raise $17,500 to benefit Empty Bowls Houston/Houston Food Bank. AND, for and every $1 donated to Houston Food Bank they can provide three meals, so that means that Fiscus’ contribution alone has provided 52,500 meals to our neighbors in need.

Thank you, Karen!

Does this look familiar? How fortunate we are to enjoy such beautiful and important artworks on our campus! Be sure to look for this piece by Dorothy Hood in the Bayou building the next time you're on campus and take time to see the exhibition of her works at the Houston Museum of Fine Arts.

The Houston Museum of Fine Arts currently has an exhibition of art by Dorothy Hood, which makes the painting by her that UHCL has displayed in the Bayou Building seem even more special, if that is possible.
