  • Texas Tech was recently named an Innovation and Economic Prosperity University by the Association of Public and Land-Grant Universities (APLU), which recognizes universities that contribute to their regions through community engagement and innovative and collaborative business/industry opportunities.
  • Texas Tech continues moving forward with efforts to bring an innovative College of Veterinary Medicine into the Texas Tech University System. Instead of duplicating current veterinary education efforts in the state, the program is designed to provide a cost-efficient solution to the growing shortage of veterinarians in rural areas and small communities.
  • The university recently announced a new international campus, Texas Tech University Costa Rica. This partnership with the country of Costa Rica will not only offer new study abroad opportunities, but extend the Texas Tech University brand into Latin America, while offering four-year degrees.

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.

The Carnegie Classification of Institutions of Higher Education placed Texas Tech among its top 115 doctoral universities in the nation in the “Highest Research Activity” category, thus cementing the university’s place as a Tier One institution. Texas Tech is one of 81 public institutions nationally among this elite group.

Research and enrollment numbers are at record levels and continue to rise. 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. In 2013, 10 faculty members were awarded grants from the Fulbright U.S. Scholar Program, the most of any research university in the nation.

Texas Tech also has four National Academy members teaching at the Whitacre College of Engineering. This honor is considered one of the highest among professional engineers. Other Texas Tech academic highlights include nationally recognized PhD programs and national leadership in distributed doctoral program offerings.
