Texas Tech Chancellor Kent Hance has issued a farewell letter to friends and colleagues on Wednesday afternoon.
Hance took office back in 2006.
In his letter, he writes that no matter how much things have changed from his time as a student, professor and chancellor, one thing remains the same - that's the spirit of the university's great people.

State Senator Robert Duncan will take over the chancellor position in July.
