Texas Tech Board of Regents to Decide on Building Renovations, Chapel Naming Thursday and Friday
The Texas Tech University System Board of Regents will meet this week, and make the decision on multiple facility renovations and the naming of the university’s new chapel.
The Regents will vote to approve a project to renovate space within the Petroleum Engineering Building to facilitate the two Donovan Maddox Distinguished Engineering Chair research programs, which they say is a crucial component to achieving Tier One status.
The group will also vote on 5 million dollars in renovations to the Texas Tech Baseball Park, which would include 10 new private suites, club space for 200 spectators, a new press box, and a new public elevator.
Finally, the Board of Regents will consider naming the Texas Tech University chapel and Bell Tower as the Kent R. Hance Chapel, as Chancellor Hance has personally provided over half the funds for the 3 million dollar project.
The Regents will consider these items and more this Thursday and Friday.
