TTUHSC raises $102 million, exceeding Campaign for your Life goal

LUBBOCK, Texas -

The Texas Tech Health Sciences Center celebrated the end of its Campaign for Your Life, Our Purpose by exceeding its $100 million goal. 

The Health Sciences Center launched the university's first-ever capital campaign in 2014 with a goal to raise the funds by the end of this year. It raised $102 million over the course of five years.

Funds will support three key areas: patients services, education and research. Interim President Lori Rice-Spearman says the impact so far has been immediate. 

"Our students are already starting to reap the benefits from the dollars that were donated, through scholarships. Our researchers are already getting funding in their labs for critical pieces of equipment, funding personnel. And of course our patient services are always positively impacted when you're able to raise this kind of money for your university," she said. 

The Health Sciences Center has graduated more than 30,000 students since opening 50 years ago. Nearly a quarter of those students practice in our region.
