After her retirement, Texas Tech Chancellor Duncan asked Dr. Haley to join the College of Visual and Preforming Arts (VPA) as a Special Advisor to bolster developmental efforts.
Former Dean of the College of Human Sciences (COHS), Elizabeth "Bess" Haley, Ph.D.,
never imagined she would one day return to Texas Tech after retiring, but she is happy
she did. Dr. Haley served as the fourth Dean of the COHS from 1981-2000, where she
left an inexplicable legacy.
