About the System
Board of Regents
The government, control, and direction of the TTU System is vested in a nine-member Board of Regents appointed by the governor and confirmed by the legislature.
Regents' Rules and Regulations
The Regents' Rules and Regulations are the governing rules for the TTU System and apply to the Board and all officers, employees, and agencies under its control.
Operating Policies and Procedures
In addition to the Regents' Rules and Regulations, the TTU System is guided by the TTU Operating Policies and Procedures, TTUHSC Operating Policies and Procedures, and Angelo State University Operating Policies and Procedures.
The Chancellor is the chief executive officer of the TTU System appointed by, and responsible to, the Board of Regents. The Chancellor carries out the policies of the System as determined by the Regents and has direct responsibility for all aspects of the operations of the TTU System's four primary components: Texas Tech University, Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center, Angelo State University and the TTU System Offices.
The presidents of Texas Tech University, Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center and Angelo State University are appointed by the Chancellor and are chief executive officers of their respective institutions and responsible for the strategic operation of each institution.

The TTU System Administration and the component institutions submit statutorily-required reports to the State of Texas which can be viewed in electronic format at the TTU System Reports page.
The Office of Audit Services is independent, reporting directly to the Board of Regents. Audit Services does not participate in the daily operations of any department in the TTU System and has offices on the TTU, TTUHSC and Angelo State campuses.
The TTU System is committed to excellence at all levels and supports the highest degree of ethical conduct. In recognizing its obligation to students, employees, and constituents to maintain the highest ethical standards, Texas Tech has established a compliance and ethics hotline to provide a confidential avenue for reporting.
Texas Tech has selected a private contractor, EthicsPoint, to provide this service for the Texas Tech community. Reports submitted through EthicsPoint will be forwarded to university officials for prompt and appropriate action. The Texas Whistleblower Act protects anyone who, in good faith, reports unlawful activity from retaliation for making such a report. The EthicsPoint system is intended to offer an additional means of reporting to individuals unable to use existing reporting procedures. However, we encourage employees and constituents to attempt the resolution of concerns through established channels whenever possible.
