Dewhurst the first to see the light


Renu Khator gained a new supporter Friday in her push to make the University of Houston a nationally ranked research university.

Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst said he will support the school as "a great selection for a Tier 1 university."

Dewhurst was among almost a dozen speakers this afternoon at a formal ceremony celebrating Khator's installation at chancellor of the UH system and president of its central campus.

He didn't provide any details about how the state might help the university achieve its goals, but he did note that Khator has been fiercely determined about the goal since taking the job in January.

An idea long past its due.
