TTUHSC Faculty Senate - February 2017 Updates
On the Horizon:
- The Child Care Facility update- The proposed location of the Childcare Center is the northwest corner of 10th Street and Texas Tech Parkway. An RFP has been released for the construction, operation and management of a childcare facility. Ideally, the facility will be ready for occupancy and childcare services capable of serving an enrollment capacity of not less than 150 full time enrollees on or before August 2017.
