A new era of excellence is dawning as Texas Tech University as it stands on the cusp
of as one of the nation's premier research institutions.
The Carnegie Classification of Institutions of Higher Education again placed Texas Tech among its top doctoral universities in the nation in the “Very High Research Activity” category. Texas Tech is one of
94 public institutions nationally and 131 overall to achieve this prestigious recognition.
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.
The Office of the President is committed to enhancing Texas Tech University's presence as a top tier national
public research university through efforts that promote even greater levels of student
success, academic quality and reputation, research and creative activities, and outreach
