You have known us as the Urban Experience Program, but we are excited to share that we have changed our name! We are now the UH Center for Student Empowerment. Our mission of helping Coogs succeed stays the same, but we think this name better reflects what we do at UH: helping traditionally underserved students on their path to graduation.

What do you think of our new name, Coogs?

Hey Coogs! We've got a big announcement coming tomorrow! Watch this space to find out what our big news is!

A lot of students think they’re “just students” because they don’t have a job title but you still have skills, talents and can make professional connections through networking.
