Discovery happens every day on our campus. The work of faculty, staff and students constantly expands what we know. Each discovery, great or small, contributes to making our economy healthier, our lives better and our country stronger.
Most of the nation's research and development is now taking place at universities. At Texas Tech we take our mission of research and discovery seriously and we pride ourselves on pushing the envelope a little further and digging a little deeper to accomplish these goals. To quote Albert Szent-Gyorgyi, a Hungarian physiologist and Nobel Prize winner, "Discovery consists of seeing what everybody has seen, and thinking what nobody has thought." And according to Louis Pasteur, "Chance favors only the prepared mind."
Texas Tech is investing in our faculty, staff and students as we strive to reach a goal of becoming a major national research university.
