A new era of excellence is dawning at Texas Tech University as it stands on the cusp
of being one of the nation's premier research institutions.
Research and enrollment numbers are at record levels, which cement Texas Tech's commitment
to attracting and retaining quality students. In fall 2020, the university achieved
a goal more than a decade in the making, reaching a total student population of more
than 40,000. In 2018, 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.
Quality students need top-notch faculty. Texas Tech is home to a diverse, highly revered
pool of educators who excel in teaching, research and service. 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 prides
itself on being able to focus on each student individually.
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
