The West Houston Institute is HCC’s hub for innovation with a mission to reimagine and reinvent higher education. Every semester, we work with faculty, both virtually and on campus, to explore new methods of teaching and learning. Faculty from all programs are encouraged to request to teach with us and innovate some aspect of their courses. Join us this Fall as we seek to discover what comes next as we continue to face a new normal within our college community.
Join us this Spring as we talk Food, Healing, and Social Justice! This series of talks has been organized by Dr. Soyeon Lee in support of the West Houston Institute's Back to the Foodture interdisciplinary challenge. Three free events will be held March 10th, 29th, and 31st at 10:00am.
