Texas Tech Must Begin Process of Hiring a New Chancellor

What is the next step for Texas Tech? That's the question on the minds of many after Chancellor David Smith announced he was stepping down. His resignation becomes effective February 28th.

From now until then, a number of events are expect to take place. It's expected to all start on Monday morning at 11:00 a.m. That's when the Board of Regents has called a teleconference special meeting to formally accept Dr. David Smith's resignation. Then, they will come up with a process to select the next chancellor. That includes selecting an advisory board, made up of various members of the Texas Tech and Lubbock community, to conduct the nationwide search for a new chancellor. The last time the regents did this, was in 2001, when John Montford stepped down. It took eight months before the regents selected Dr. David Smith to replace Montford.

Dr. Smith says he would like his successor to continue working on two goals he set for the university when he took over in may of 2002. One is to continue bringing resources to Texas Tech and the second is to improve Texas Tech's reputation on the state and national level. It's also up to the regents to award Dr. David Smith a severance package. There's still no word on those details yet.
