Chancellor Tedd L. Mitchell, M.D., and First Lady Janet Tornelli-Mitchell, M.D., Holiday Greetings

December 17, 2021

Dear Texas Tech University System family,

This past year has been one like no other. As it comes to an end, I want to thank all of you for everything you do for the Texas Tech University System.

In 2021, we commemorated 25 years of excellence as a system while celebrating our continued growth with the addition of Midwestern State University as our fifth member institution. Our universities continue to elevate the TTU System by being leaders in higher education, health care and research and by serving our communities in life-changing ways.

These successes would not have been possible without each and every one of you. Thank you for your support of our system, our universities and our students, faculty and staff. I sincerely appreciate your commitment to our values-based approach and your efforts to foster a culture that allows all of us to strive for – and achieve – greatness.

I am so proud of what we have accomplished this year, together.

Janet and I wish you a safe, happy and healthy holiday season!

Warmest regards,


Tedd L. Mitchell, M.D.

Janet Tornelli-Mitchell, M.D.
First Lady
