TTU at Collin Hires New Director and Advisor
by Kelly Podzemny
Texas Tech University's newest regional teaching site, Texas Tech University at Collin Higher Education Center (TTU at Collin), has hired two new staff members and is offering its first course in the Dallas/Fort Worth area during the spring 2016 semester.
Jameshia Granberry has been hired as TTU at Collin's new director. She comes to Texas Tech from Wayne State University where she has been the Director of Graduate Admissions and Graduate Student Services. Before that she was the Associate Director of Graduate Admissions and Graduate Student Services at UT Tyler.
"Texas Tech University has a longstanding legacy that promotes excellence and affordability and I am thrilled about the opportunity to work for Texas Tech University at Collin," Granberry said. "I look forward to the opportunity to create an office with a student-centered environment that strives to provide opportunities for all students seeking undergraduate and graduate degrees."
Caleb Cox will join Granberry as the site's new Academic Advisor/Recruiter. Cox has been an asset to TTU Worldwide eLearning and previously the TTU Ethics Center since 2011. He relocated to McKinney in late January to help establish and grow the new site.
"I'm extremely excited to be given the opportunity to help grow TTU at Collin and student enrollment," Cox said. "Although I'm sad to be leaving the TTU Worldwide eLearning office in Lubbock, I'm looking forward to working directly with current and prospective students in Collin County."
Texas Tech is the newest partner in Collin College's Collin Higher Education Center located in McKinney. Students complete most of their core curriculum requirements with Collin College, and their upper-level coursework with Texas Tech without leaving McKinney. The center also partners with Texas A&M University-Commerce, Texas Women's University, the University of North Texas at Dallas and the University of North Texas.
"Texas Tech has excellent opportunities at the Collin Higher Education Center," Vice Provost Dr. Melanie Hart said. "There are a number of potential students who live in the Collin area and are looking for opportunities to continue their education."
TTU at Collin will offer three degree programs at launch: Bachelor of General Studies, Bachelor of Science in Human Sciences and Bachelor of Arts/Science in University Studies. Additional programs will be added as the site grows, and pending the approval of other partner universities in the center.
Texas Tech first signed the agreement partnering with Collin College in January 2015.
