A Message from the President
When the criteria required to achieve national research university funding were announced in the state of Texas, some said it would take us eight years to qualify. Two years following that announcement, Texas Tech University stands at the doorstep of acceptance, having met the criteria necessary for inclusion. The collective effort of our students, faculty, staff and administration is realized through this endeavor as we forge ahead to become the next great national research university.
We are excited about our current opportunities, but have our sights set on greater goals. I invite you to view our 10-year business plan, designed to assist Texas Tech University in achieving a research profile equivalent to that of members of the Association of American Universities. We have made tremendous strides in enhancing the quality of our research through strategic faculty hires and attracting the best and brightest students. Our graduates are making a difference and our outreach is affecting thousands of lives. As we like to say, "Texas Tech University…From here, it's possible."
Dr. Guy Bailey
