TTU Meets It's First Presidential Candidate

The search for a new president at Texas Tech University has been narrowed to two and one of those candidates is visiting the campus this week.

Dr. Brady Deaton earned his PhD in Agricultural Economics from the University of Wisconsin, and is currently Executive Vice Chancellor and Provost at the University of Missouri, Columbia.

Dr. Deaton says it's Texas Tech's role in this region that is attracting him to Lubbock. "This is a very inspirational institution. It's a wonderful physical plant. It's a wonderfully spirited faculty that we've met with a leadership that's really committed to move forward to serve the state and nation."

Dr. Deaton will round out his visit to Texas Tech on Friday when he will meet with students and the provost. A second candidate for the job is expected to visit the campus August 4th.
