Texas Tech University (TTU) System Chancellor Robert L. Duncan made it clear last week that the Highland Lakes are a part of the TTU West Texas vision.
“Anything west of I35 is something we should be taking responsibility for,” Duncan said in a visit to the TTU regional teaching site at the Frank Fickett Education Center in Marble Falls Friday, May 6. “We are responsible to do what our taxpayers want us to produce—an educated workforce.”
To that end, a tour of the new Baylor Scott & White Hospital had been part of Duncan's visit, and he said: “That is a game changer.”
He spoke of the strength of Texas Tech's in preparing some 36,000 students through its Lubbock main campus, medical and law schools and regional campuses: “Texas Tech is one of the 'big boys,' now,” he said.
