Interim President Named for Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center at El Paso

TTUHSC Lubbock

With the signing of Senate Bill 120 into law earlier this week by Governor Rick Perry, the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center at El Paso officially became a free-standing institution within the Texas Tech University System. Thursday, Tedd L. Mitchell, M.D. (pictured), was named interim president of TTUHSC at El Paso. Mitchell currently serves as president of the TTUHSC campus in Lubbock.

Mitchell will continue to oversee the TTUHSC Lubbock campus as he leads the TTUHSC El Paso through its transition period.

“We are especially grateful to Gov. Perry, Sen. José Rodríguez, Rep. Naomi Gonzalez and others in the Texas Legislature for their tremendous support of the bill,” said Texas Tech University System Chancellor Kent Hance. “This significant milestone would not have been possible without the hard work and commitment of our students, faculty, staff, community members and donors in El Paso. There have been many achievements realized in El Paso as a regional campus, and we are excited to build on this great momentum now as an independent university.”

Texas Tech officials state a nationwide search will be conducted to find the first permanent president of TTUHSC at El Paso.
