REPORT: Robert Duncan to be Named Next Chancellor of Texas Tech University

The Texas Tribune is citing multiple sources that State Senator Robert Duncan will be named as the next Chancellor of Texas Tech University.

KFYO reached out to Senator Duncan’s office, but they had “no comment” on reports that Duncan had been selected.

The Texas Tech Board of Regents on May 16 voted to allow Chairman Mickey Long to make an announcement about the sole finalist whenever he deemed it appropriate. As of Friday three candidates were being considered for the position. Texas State Senator Robert Duncan, Karen Tandy former head of the DEA, and Mike Moses who is the endowed chair of educational leadership at the University of North Texas were the three finalist named.

Duncan was elected to the Texas House of Representatives in 1992 and has represented Lubbock in the Texas Senate since 1996. Duncan received his bachelor’s degree in agricultural economics and a law degree from Texas Tech.

According to the Texas Tribune, an official announcement is expected later today.
