    Congratulations on your new assignment. One of your objectives is to step up the recruitment of new students. However, if you go into a sporting goods store anywhere east of I-35 in this state you will not find Texas Tech apparel. How can we expect to draw new students to Tech if they are not aware it exists? Please advise>

    Congratulations to you and I hope you have much success as our new Chancellor. I am a 1963 graduate of Texas Tech and look forward to meeting you.

Texas Tech University System

The Texas Tech University System is one of the top public university systems in the state of Texas, consisting of four component institutions and operating at 12 academic sites and centers. Headquartered in Lubbock, Texas, the TTU System has an annual operating budget of $1.7 billion and approximately 17,000 employees focused on advancing higher education, health care, research and outreach.

In 2012, total research expenditures approached $200 million and total enrollment exceeded 43,700 students for the first time in the TTU System’s history. Whether it’s contributing billions of dollars annually in economic impact or being the only system in Texas to house an academic institution, law school, and medical school at the same location, the TTU System continues to prove that anything is possible.
