Legislation signed into law in 2009 allowed UHV to admit its first freshmen and sophomores in fall 2010. UHV is now a dynamic destination university in the Coastal Bend region of Texas that serves the educational needs, promotes the economic well-being and advances the quality of life for the university and community through teaching, research and service excellence.
