I have a question regarding the current status of the UHD name change.
I think you will find the most up-to-date information about the status of the possible UHD name change by contacting Public Affairs. The head of that department is Diane Summers, Executive Director of University Relations, 713-226-5519 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
A couple of interesting documents come up if you search the UHD website for "name change" (use the search box in the very top right of any UHD web page). There are the results of a poll of students, faculty, staff, and alumni on their opinions about possible names for the university and also some articles from Dateline Downtown (UHD's student newspaper). However, these articles are now a couple of years old.
You can also search the Houston Chronicle for articles about the possible name change, but the most recent articles I found are from 2009. To search the Chronicle, from the UHD Library homepage, click the blue DATABASES tab in the middle of the screen. Then click the "H" link. Then choose the link for "Houston Chronicle." Once in the database, I searched for: UHD name change.
