Lawrence Schovanec Named as Texas Tech Interim President

Texas Tech has named an interim president.

Lawrence Schovanec, dean of the College of Arts & Sciences, will serve as the interim president of the University, after gaining approval from the Board of Regents.

Schovanec has served as dean of the College of Arts & Sciences since June of 2010, and will begin as interim president in early September.

“Dr. Schovanec has 30 years of dedicated service at Texas Tech,” said Texas Tech Chancellor Kent Hance. “I am confident Dr. Schovanec will lead with enthusiasm and integrity in this role.”

Schovanec earned a doctorate in mathematics from Indiana University, a master’s degree from Texas A&M University, and his bachelor of science degree from Phillips University. He began at Texas Tech in 1982.

Schovanec will serve until a search committee selects a replacement for Guy Bailey, who accepted a position as president of the University of Alabama.

“I am humbled by the opportunity to serve Texas Tech as interim president,” said Schovanec. “Working with all university stakeholders, and utilizing our Strategic Plan and business model, my objective as interim president is to enhance Texas Tech’s position as a great public research university.”
