Hurricane Harvey Resource Guide

The University of Houston MD Anderson Library is providing a guide to help navigate through the resources available in the wake of Hurricane Harvey and its devastating aftermath. The guide includes the most trustworthy and reliable resources available at this time, and encourages users to exercise caution while Googling for recovery-related resources, as the information is not always credible and can link to bogus charities, repair companies and other predatory sources.

Please visit http://guides.lib.uh.edu/harvey to access the full guide.

For engineering students who were adversely impacted by the hurricane, a Cougar Emergency Fund was created to provide up to $2,500 of relief funding per student. Please visit http://www.uh.edu/about/offices/enrollment-services/communications-marketing/2017-harvey-fra-final for more information and to apply.

Finally, a UH Cougar Emergency Fund has been established to provide comfort and ease for students who find themselves with hardships as a result of the storm. If you are interested in donating to the campus-wide Harvey Relief fund, please visit https://giving.uh.edu/gift/?allocation=HC55074HA45.

UH grad Walheim continues to plot course for the stars

Rex Walheim, a 1989 graduate of the Industrial Engineering Masters program at UH, is now at the private company Axiom Space after retiring from NASA. The agency noted that he spent almost 36 years in government service, 36 days in space, and 36 hours on spacewalks.

When Rex Walheim first enrolled at the University of Houston's Cullen College of Engineering's Masters program in Industrial Engineering in the 1980s, his goals were literally sky high. At the time, he was a flight controller at the Johnson Space Center and a lieutenant in the United States Air Force, and he hadn't yet flown a vessel himself.
