El Paso joins Texas Tech University System

Officials today announced the establishment of the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center at El Paso, which means it becomes the fourth university under the Texas Tech System.

It may not sound new because the first class of students are graduating in El Paso this year from the foster school of medicine and the hunt school of nursing, but this is a big deal because the announcement today from Governor Perry means instead of a regional branch, El Paso now provides a free-standing institution of the Texas Tech System, along with one in San Angelo, and of course the largest undergraduate campus and health sciences center here in Lubbock.
