Summary: FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Division of Student Affairs Spotlight: UH Forensic Society
The University of Houston Forensics (UHFS) was re-established in July 2002 under the dual
umbrella of the Office of the Vice President for Student Affairs and the Honors College.
Beginning with no students or identifiable events at all, UHFS is now the most active
collegiate host of on-campus events and educational programs in Texas. During the years
2009-2011, UHFS has involved 300+ students in on-campus activities and has planned
educational programming that centers on hosting, volunteering, and competing in forensic
tournaments that are beneficial to the entire UH student body. This is the largest level of
participation since UH debate teams first emerged in 1950.
Recently, UHFS won 1st
Place in the Individual Events at the 48th Annual Falcon Forensics
Tournament hosted by the U.S. Air Force Academy. This three-day national contest is the
only forensic event hosted by one of the American military academies February 11-13, 2011.
The University of Houston last won this contest in 1995.
UHFS helps to create opportunities for all students to use their public speaking skills in ways
that benefit local communities and bring recognition to the University of Houston. To find
