Advance Publication

Texas state law protects the identity of any applicant for the position of Chancellor of the Texas Tech University System until such time as the applicant is named a finalist for the position.  The same state law requires that, for a chancellor of a public higher education system in Texas, public notice of the name of any finalist must be given at least 21 days before the date on which final action is taken to employ the person.
