Inside Texas Tech: Chancellor Duncan on Campus Growth (pt. 1)


Texas Tech’s enrollment numbers will continue to climb and university officials are working to ensure the rate at which the school grows doesn’t sacrifice quality. The system’s chancellor, Robert Duncan, says the right balance is important.

Just more than 37,000 students enrolled at Texas Tech University last fall. In the fall of 1997, the number of undergraduate and graduate students stood at around 25,022. That’s more than a 32 percent increase in 20 years.

Texas Tech alum Dr. Jeremy Brown knows that trying to fill the shoes of his predecessor at Hospice of Lubbock isn’t realistic. But he’s dedicated to working every day to ensure the nonprofit is the best it can be and continues to provide dignity and relief to those in its care. Brown is also the medical director of the organization.

Charlie Wasson served as executive director at Hospice of Lubbock for eight years before his sudden and unexpected death in May. His successor, Dr. Jeremy Brown, will now serve as both executive director and medical director.
 

It’s a new year. I hope your 2018 is off to an amazing start. It’s been a pure joy to come to you every Thursday afternoon since 2013 to share what’s going on in arts and entertainment in Lubbock and beyond. However, all good things come to end, or rather evolve into new projects and ideas.

Melanie Tatum never dreamed recycling on the Texas Tech campus would pay off so big for students. Proceeds from the university’s recycling efforts since 2013 have led to scholarships totaling $130 thousand dollars since 2013. In the last fiscal year the sustainability program recycled almost 600 tons of materials dropped off at the University Student Housing Recycling Center.
