The Office of the Vice President for Research (OVPR), based on three listening sessions with faculty, staff and students, has developed a road map for improving how the division serves the campus community.
“During the listening session, we heard consistent themes of where we could improve,” said Taylor Eighmy, vice president for research, of the OVPR’s strategic action plan. “We have created a series of action items with responsibilities assigned for each item over the next few years.”
The OVPR supports research, scholarship and creative activity in every discipline on the TTU campus.
“For Texas Tech to meet its goal of becoming a national research university, our office must continually look for better ways to serve our faculty, staff and students,” Eighmy said.
The plan is meant to be a dynamic document and will be reviewed annually.
