A Celebration of Generosity
TTUHSC to recognize donors at appreciation event
WHAT: Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center (TTUHSC) will host a Celebration of Generosity Appreciation Dinner.
WHEN: 6 p.m. social hour, 7 p.m. program, Thursday (March 3)
WHERE: Lubbock Country Club, 3400 Mesa Road
EVENT: Texas Tech University System Chancellor Robert Duncan and TTUHSC President Tedd L. Mitchell, M.D., will speak at the event along with donors and scholarship recipients.
The generosity of its donors has helped TTUHSC award more than $9.1 million in grants and scholarships this year as well as provide support for faculty appointments and research initiatives. Scholarships and grants help offset TTUHSC student loans, which during the 2015-2016 academic year will total approximately $71 million.
TTUHSC receives only 23 percent of its budget from state funding, which makes donor support critical in carrying out the university’s mission.
