A new era of excellence is dawning as Texas Tech University achieves the Tier One designation. As of 2016, Texas Tech is listed among the nation's top doctoral universities in the Carnegie Classification
of Institutions of Higher Education. Of the 115 universities listed in the Highest Research Activity category, Texas Tech
is one of 81 public institutions in the top tier.
Research and enrollment numbers are at record levels, which cement Texas Tech's commitment
to attracting and retaining quality students. The university strives to foster an
environment that celebrates student accomplishment above all else. Texas Tech is large
enough to provide the best in facilities and academics, but small enough to focus
on each student individually.
Quality students need a top-notch faculty. Texas Tech is home to a diverse, highly
revered pool of educators who excel in teaching, research and service.
The momentum for excellence at Texas Tech has never been greater.
