Texas Tech made it official on Thursday when the university named Dr. Roy Wilson the new President of the Health Sciences Center. Dr. Wilson comes to Lubbock from Omaha, Nebraska where he is currently employed by Creighton University.
Dr. Wilson says his first order of business will be getting to know his staff. He will make frequent visits to Lubbock until he can permanently move here in June. "I've tried to come down here two or three times so far. You just talk to everybody and get a sense of what they feel are the priorities and start putting it all together."
Dr. Wilson is aware of the current budget crisis in Texas. He says he is already focusing on that and calls it a manageable and temporary situation.
