Advisory Committee for Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center President Search

January 10, 2007 | Written by Sally Logue Post

Kent Hance, chancellor of the Texas Tech University System, has named a 19-member Advisory Committee to assist in selecting the next president of the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center (TTUHSC).

The committee includes representatives of key Texas Tech University and Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center constituencies, including faculty, administration, staff, students and members of communities in which the Health Sciences Center operates.

The committee, working with a five-member search committee established by the Chancellor last month, will help identify potential candidates, assist with initial screenings of candidates and ensure that their respective constituency groups are kept up to date on the progress of the search.

"The committee will play an extremely important role in the search process," said Hance. "The new Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center president will work with all groups represented on the advisory panel, so it is essential that they have a voice as we move forward."

"We have an outstanding group of individuals who have agreed to serve and we are looking forward to the collaboration between the search committee and the advisory committee," Hance said.

The advisory committee members include:

The new Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center president will fill a vacancy left in June 2006 when Roy Wilson, resigned. Bernhard T. Mittemeyer, is serving as interim president.
