Texas Tech to enter consultant phase in veterinary school quest

Veterinary Practice News - Texas Tech University is poised to begin hiring consultants for its veterinary school project, said Robert Duncan, chancellor of the university. The 85th Texas Legislature, which convened this past January, agreed that the idea for a second veterinary college in Texas—Texas A&M is presently the only one—warranted a closer look.

As a result, the Legislature earmarked $4.1 million in the current state budget for further study of the project's feasibility.

"They [consultants] will offer guidance on the process, including such things as planning, budgets, and accreditation," said Brad Ashworth, vice chancellor, communications and marketing at Texas Tech.

The consultants will be paid out of the money coming from the state.
