  • Texas Tech is developing a College of Veterinary Medicine. Instead of duplicating current veterinary education in Texas, the program will address the growing shortage of veterinarians in rural areas and small communities.
  • Texas Tech University Costa Rica, a partnership with the country of Costa Rica, enrolled its first class in fall 2018 and will offer new study abroad opportunities and extend the Texas Tech University reach into Latin America, while offering four-year degrees.

Texas Tech University has established itself as one of the nation’s leading research universities, and its academic reputation is recognized globally.

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 five National Academy members teaching at the Whitacre College of Engineering and a National Academy of Sciences member in the College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources. These honors are among the most prestigious for faculty. Other Texas Tech academic highlights include nationally recognized Ph.D. programs and national leadership in distributed doctoral program offerings.

Texas Tech recently qualified for application as a Hispanic Serving Institution, when 27.8 percent of its undergraduate class in 2017 identified as Hispanic. The university also was named an Innovation and Economic Prosperity University by the Association of Public and Land-Grant Universities, which recognizes universities that contribute to their regions through community engagement and innovative and collaborative business/industry opportunities.
