President Renu Khator,
My name is Matt Winick from Ann Arbor, Michigan and I have a strong interest in learning history, social justice, and diversity. In these subjects or core values I like to learn the need to make civil rights stronger to reduce discrimination,  protect the environment from pollution, have education reform to improve learning, a strong importance of diversity to accept people who are different or come from a different background, and many others. President Khator, the main reason I’m writing you a letter is to explain how I find your work as 13th President of the University of Houston and as Chancellor of the University of Houston System to be very inspiring to me.
In January 2008,  I was amazed on how you made history on becoming the first Indian American woman to become 13th President of the University of Houston and as Chancellor of the University of Houston System. In your current role as 13th President of the University of Houston and as Chancellor of the University of Houston System, I truly appreciate on how you support civil rights causes by advocating for people with disabilities’ rights and expressing the need to make civil rights stronger to help protect minorities, women, and people with disabilities fro being discriminated. Also I like on how you work on expanding educational awareness about the need to reduce bullying and harassment to improve public safety.  Expanding accommodations to help students with disabilities improve learning like extra time on exams or have educational software to help improve on comprehension, pushing for more tutoring services to provide students with help on their assignments from tutors, and implementing more arts, history, and basic classes to make education diverse is common sense for education reform. Also on education reform, I like on how you support literacy programs to help students improve on their comprehension or gain reading skills and heavily advocate with support the need for more Liberal Arts to help students find which courses are a fit for them or help give them an opportunity to develop skills for other classes. Your approach on improving diversity like hiring women, minorities, and people with disabilities to work for the college and push for programs to help educate people about different cultures along with emphasize the importance of diversity to accept people who are different or come from a different background is common sense.   Another thing that I like about your work as President of the University of Houston and as Chancellor of the University of Houston System is how you support expanding on social justice programs to help students understand the importance of how social justice can make communities a better place, push for more scholarships to assist low-income students or students who can’t afford tuition get assistance on getting into classes along with getting supplies, and work to expand more research programs to help students understand how different topics can make a great difference for society. Besides your work as President of University of Houston System, I like on how you are a strong advocate for immigration reform to help protect immigrants including refugees from oppressive countries,  support environmental protection causes to reduce pollution, continuous support civil rights including people with disabilities’ rights causes, and heavily express the importance of social justice. 

President Renu Khator, I have autism with a learning disability. Having a disability is hard for me because I have trouble comprehending on learning different advance subjects, sometimes I struggle to communicate my thoughts, and get teased.  Your commitment to be a strong supporter of civil rights including people with disabilities’ rights causes really inspires me to work hard on my disability. On Youtube “University of Houston President Renu Khator on her life and growth and future of the University” and “Outlook Speakout 2018: President of the University of Houston Renu Khator on her Journey”  I liked learning about your story about growing up in an Indian village then coming to America to have an education, express the need for education reform to improve learning, an importance of reducing discrimination,  heavily express the need for immigration reform to help protect immigrants including refugees from oppressive countries.  Your role as 13th President of the University of Houston and as Chancellor of the University of Houston System gives me motivation to learn history, social justice, and diversity. My future goal is to someday work in these areas to emphasize the need to make civil rights stronger to reduce discrimination,  protect the environment from pollution, have education reform to improve learning, a strong importance of diversity to accept people who are different or come from a different background, and many others.

I strongly believe that you are making a great difference for society and education. I’m amazed on how you made history on becoming the first Indian American woman to become President of the University of Houston and Chancellor of the University of Houston System. Also I’m very proud on how you are working hard to support civil rights causes, push for education reform, improve on diversity, advocate for social justice causes, and many others. You have inspire me to work hard on my disability, learn more about your work, and continue to learn history including social justice.  Thanks for taking the time to read my letter, working hard to make a great difference, and inspiring me. Please continue to work hard to make a great difference and to continue to advocate for common sense ideas.
Sincerely,

Matt Winick
