Texas Tech chancellor to resign

 

LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) — Texas Tech University System Chancellor Kent Hance has announced that he will resign as leader of a system that's grown to enroll more than 44,000 students.

The board of regents voted Friday to accept the resignation of the 70-year-old Hance.

In 2006 he became the third chancellor of the system, which includes the flagship Texas Tech campus in Lubbock, Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center, Angelo State University and satellite system offices. He proved adept at fund-raising, helping the system bring in more than $100 million for seven straight years.

Hance intends to remain in Lubbock until a replacement is found.

He's a native of the Texas Panhandle who served four years in the Texas Senate in the 1970s before beating George W. Bush to become a three-term congressman.
