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

revered pool of educators who excel in teaching, research and service.
The momentum for excellence at Texas Tech has never been greater.

public research university through efforts that promote even greater levels of student
success, academic quality and reputation, research and creative activities, and outreach

for Texas Tech students, faculty and staff. The office promotes an academic environment
