Not sure if it will.

Looks like UH will be involved.

Other area colleges have offered their support. Rice said Thursday that the University of Houston, the University of Houston-Downtown, Texas Southern University, the University of St. Thomas, Houston Baptist University, South Texas College of Law Houston, Houston Community College and Lone Star College intend to participate.

A collaborative hub for Houston’s universities focused on innovation sounds somewhat like what Mayor Sylvester Turner pitched almost a year ago at his State of the City address.
