Texas Tech University System Chancellor Kent Hance today named a committee to assist in the search for the next president of the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center.

“Finding a president for the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center is my top priority for that university,” said Hance. “The committee will begin work right away so that we can find the best possible candidate to lead our university.”

The five-member search committee is chaired by Regent Robert L. Stafford of Amarillo. Stafford is a retired orthopedic surgeon.

Other members of the committee are:

The search committee will solicit, review and screen candidates for the position and recommend a slate of candidates to the chancellor for his consideration. The chancellor, in turn, will consult with the Board of Regents before making a final selection.

An advisory committee will be appointed in the next several days to assist the search committee in identifying the most qualified candidates. The advisory committee will be made up of faculty, administrators, students and community members from cities where the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center has a presence.
