The academic success of our PROMES student community is celebrated each spring at the Annual PROMES Awards Banquet. This year's banquet was held at Brady's Landing on Feb. 28. To access the photos from this year's banquet, please visit our Flickr page at: http://flic.kr/s/aHsjEerwv5.

More about the PROMES program: A service of the University of Houston Cullen College of Engineering, PROMES (pronounced "promise") provides engineering students with recruitment, academic advising, workshops, scholarships and job opportunities. The Program for Mastery in Engineering Studies (PROMES) was established at the University of Houston in 1974 for the recruitment, retention, and academic development of Hispanic, African American, and Native American students in the Cullen College of Engineering. Today PROMES is open to all students in the college, and our mission is to provide a positive learning environment that supports the needs of undergraduate students.

VIDEO: Giving a Hand to Those in Need: Two UH Undergrads Share Their Gifts

8-year-old Rafael tries on pieces of his gift - a new hand from UH students

Might not seem tear-worthy to most, but her baby is 8-year-old Rafael. Likely born with a form of symbrachydactyly, Rafael’s fingers never formed in utero, leaving him with only a tiny fist-like hand.
