After 25 years of service to the Cullen College of Engineering, John Matthews, program manager for PROMES and STEP Forward Camp director, retired on Jan. 31.
Students, faculty and staff celebrated Matthews’ tenure at the University of Houston with a mixer in the Engineering Commons where attendees were able to thank him for his service. Matthews has been an instrumental part of leading the PROMES program to new heights as well as establishing the very popular STEP Forward Camp. He also took leadership in establishing PROMES program workshops for current engineering students. PROMES workshops are peer-led, collaborative learning opportunities supporting math, science and engineering courses. The workshops are open to all engineering students, helping them to grasp tough concepts early in their engineering studies.
