News from the West Houston Institute
Every year, we engage with students, faculty, and staff at Houston Community College and our partner institutions, as well as businesses and our community in the greater Houston area. There are many interesting stories that come from these diverse and varied interactions. What they all share in common is that all started here at the West Houston Institute.
Faculty and students will work across STEM disciplines to research and apply current research and technological innovations to the problem of plastic waste.

The data is in for 2018-19 and the West Houston Institute's Learning Commons, supported by HCC Northwest Libraries, is the most used Electronic Resource across the district.
The Collaboratorium played an integral part in the success of the #RealCollege 2019 Summit, hosted by the WHI in September 2019.
