Hiring Vice Chancellor may signal expansion of TTU System

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

The Victoria Advocate web site published an article Sunday night that says on Monday Texas Tech will name a new Vice Chancellor.  Tim Hudson was until recently the University of Houston-Victoria President.  But, it's a much bigger deal than it seems.

The Victoria Advocate says, "While Hudson's supporters view Monday's announcement as bittersweet, his transfer could pave the way for UHV's move into the Tech system."

But that's not all.  The Victoria Advocate also says, "… during talks, Tech and its Chancellor displayed strong interest in having UHV join it…"

The advocate says Hudson's job will be to expand Texas Tech's name recognition statewide.  Hudson neither confirmed nor denied that the school in Victoria wants to abandon the University of Houston in favor of becoming part of Texas Tech.
