UH-Clear Lake seeks input in mascot search
The University of Houston-Clear Lake’s Mascot Leadership Team is soliciting ideas for a university mascot.
The eight-member leadership team is overseeing the process, seeking input and ideas from all parts of the university community. An advisory team, composed of 10 representatives from major constituent groups, will provide critical feedback to the leadership team during the search process.
“A mascot can create a community in which all can feel as if they belong,” says UH-Clear Lake Interim Dean of Students David Rachita, who serves on the Mascot Leadership Team. “It illustrates a shared school spirit that students are proud to ‘show off’ to others. It lets the greater community see the pride and want to be part of the energy.”
This is not the first time the selection of a mascot has been sought for the 37-year-old university. There was an alumni association initiative in the 1980s, as well as another attempt by the university to find a mascot in the 1990s.
The team is asking that all ideas be turned into them no later than Friday, March 11. Final recommendations will be provided to the university president for approval.
