Texas Tech Names Lawrence Schovanec as Provost and Senior Vice President

Texas Tech has named a new provost.

On Sunday, Tech officially named Lawrence Schovanec to the position of provost and senior vice president.

Schovanec has held the post as interim since June.

“We conducted a thorough and exhaustive search to ensure we selected the right person to lead our academic efforts, and Dr. Schovanec emerged as the top candidate from an exceedingly strong pool of finalists,” said Texas Tech President M. Duane Nellis.

Prior to becoming interim provost, Schovanec served for nearly a year as interim Texas Tech president and two years as dean of the College of Arts and Sciences.

“I have had the pleasure of watching this great university grow during my time here, and am proud of the faculty, staff, and students who dedicate themselves to furthering the academic mission of Texas Tech,” said Schovanec. “I look forward to working side-by-side with Dr. Nellis and thank him for his leadership and vision.

Schovanec joined the Texas Tech faculty in 1982, and served as chairman of the Department of Mathematics and Statistics from 1998 through 2008. He then served as interim dean of the College of Arts & Sciences until May 2010.

The provost is the chief academic officer of the university, and the Office of the Provost is responsible for the overall academic mission of the university.
