Board of Regents

The Texas Legislature, in Chapters 109, 110, and in Section 51.352, Texas Education Code, has delegated to the Board of Regents of the Texas Tech University System the power and authority to govern, control and direct the policies of the TTU System.

The board is composed of nine members appointed by the governor with the advice and consent of the senate for staggered terms of six years each, the term of three members expiring on January 31 of odd-numbered years. In addition to the nine members, there also is a student regent who is appointed by the governor to serve a one-year term that begins on June 1 of each year.

For more than 90 years, the institutions of the TTU System have served as a beacon of excellence in education and research on the South Plains and beyond. Throughout its history, the Board of Regents has been composed of distinguished and dedicated Texans who have been strong advocates of excellence in academic and patient care programs, meaningful scientific research and responsible public service.
