Texas Tech leaders are visiting Washington D.C. this week.

Tech Chancellor Kent Hance, Interim Texas Tech University President Lawrence Schovanec, and Texas Tech Health Sciences Center President Tedd L. Mitchell are meeting with key U.S. legislators in the nation’s capital.

The group is discussing various initiatives for the Texas Tech University System.

“By meeting with our elected officials in Washington, D.C., we are able to communicate the importance of our initiatives and identify areas of collaboration to ensure a promising future for each of our institutions,” said Hance.

Texas Tech University initiatives include wind energy, food safety, agricultural research, the Ogallala Aquifer, the University Transportation Center, and their Hill Country campuses in Highland Lakes, Junction, and Fredericksburg.

Initiatives for the HSC focus on rural and border health, primary care, veterans affairs, and general research.

“We have faculty at Texas Tech conducting valuable research that offers solutions to issues affecting our community, region, and state,” said Schovanec. “It’s important we convey to our legislators the significant impact of the work being done on our campus.”
