Chancellor Kent Hance said this has been a defining year for Texas Tech. Hance made the comment in conjunction with a Chamber of Commerce luncheon speech on the State of the Tech System.

Hance includes as highlights four head coaching changes and the hiring of a new president. He said making the Health Sciences Center in El Paso, Tech's fourth university a significant milestone for the system. 

Chancellor Hance also cited growth in research spending, degrees awarded, and enrollment as hallmarks of progress benefiting all of us.

"In the last six years we've added nine thousand students and that is tremendous for the business community, Texas Tech and Lubbock," he said. It also adds a lot of jobs because we have new faculty members, new staff members, and new apartments being built. Texas Tech has a huge impact on Lubbock and the South Plains."    

The Chancellor expects Texas Tech's fall enrollment to number 34,000 students. He's set a goal of 40,000 students by 2020.

A private university would be required to have an on-site parking space for every other student. If the state is leading by example, and Tech shows that they are prime examples of compliance of standards imposed upon others, I would like to know how many student spaces are on the campus, so Tech can show that they are ready and compliant for 34,000 students.
