HERC Webinar: "Demystifying the H-1B Visa Process: What Higher Education Supervisors Need to Know”

July 16

The Office of the Provost invites you to join us for this Webinar. Please also feel free to share with any interested staff in your office.

Foreign Nationals in H-1B status are increasingly common in our research labs and university classrooms, but the petition process and employment requirements remain poorly understood. In this webinar, we will cover all aspects of H-1B employment, from selection and sponsorship, to renewals, and eventual termination or consideration for permanent residency.

Presenter: Ann Pino is the Manager of Employment at the University of Houston. Her duties include oversight of immigration hiring and onboarding, including the I-9 process and H-1B compensation review. She is the HR liaison to International Student and Scholar Services and to the Immigration Specialist in the Office of the General Counsel. She has twice served as the Interim Immigration Specialist with responsibility for the H-1B process for all components of the University of Houston system, and she has led recent efforts to improve the H-1B process at the University of Houston Main Campus. Ann is the founding Director of South-Central-Gulf Texas Higher Education Recruitment Consortium (SCGTX-HERC) and she holds a M.Ed. in Higher Education Administration.
