Foundation For Education and Research in Vision, Inc.

Established in 1955, the Foundation for Education and Research in Vision (FERV) is an official fundraising arm of the University of Houston College of Optometry.  The primary purpose and mission of FERV is to advance optometric education through securing private fiancial funding for UHCO initiatives, directly supporting education, patient care, community service, and research.  FERV values each donor and each gift.

Throughout the year, FERV hosts several fundraising events for alumni and friends benefitting student scholarships as well as program and faculty support.  Some of those events include the annual FERV Golf Tournament and the Anderson Fair Benefit Concert.  For a current list of events, visit the UHCO calendar at http://www.opt.uh.edu/calendar/college.cfm.

The foundation is governed by a fifteen-member voluntary board of directors.  A current list of the FERV Officers and Board of Directors is on our web site at https://www.opt.uh.edu/alumni/ferv/board-of-directors.cfm.
