In other action, the Board of Regents announced that longtime Department of Natural Resources Management leader Ernest Fish has been selected for faculty emeritus status. Emeritus appointments are honorary and are given at retirement and are intended to recognize long and faithful service, or distinguished service to the university. Fish, whose last day was Jan. 31, was a Texas Tech faculty member since 1973, and chairman of the department from 1999 to 2008.

Separately, university officials noted that the board’s action brings to 797 the number of full-time tenured faculty at Texas Tech. There are a total of 1,075 full-time faculty, either tenured or tenure track. Another 280 faculty members are full-time non-tenure or non-tenure track.
