Today Texas Tech became one of 81 public institutions to receive top tier recognition. Tech earned Tier One Carnegie Designation.

The institutions achieving this status are announced every five years, according to a Tech news release. The distinction is based on a university’s research, academic scholarship and teaching based on the categories Highest Research Activity, Higher Research Activity and Moderate Research Activity.

"Designation as a Carnegie Tier One university is not accomplished overnight," John Opperman, Texas Tech interim president, said in the release. "It is the culmination of years of dedication to research, teaching and learning by our administration, faculty, staff and students."

According to the release, this status is representative of Tech’s momentum as a university. Back in May 2012, Tech was the first university in Texas to earn access to the National Research University Fund. This fund was established in House Bill 51.

Commitment to research has been enhanced by infrastructure investments, faculty retention and recruitment and workspace, according to the release.

Tech has increased partnerships with corporations such as Bayer CropScience to help reach this status, according to the release.

"Texas Tech can be proud that it is now listed among the 'highest research activity' institutions and was one of only 15 universities to move into this category since the previous ranking in 2010," Lawrence Schovanec, provost and senior vice president said in the release. "The Carnegie designation is rewarding for our faculty, who make possible a productive, research-oriented environment, while still fulfilling our fundamental obligation of providing our students with an exceptional educational experience."

Part of the criteria for Carnegie’s highest research activity designation is the number of doctoral degrees conferred. According to the release, Tech has been increasing that number the past five years. In 2015 Tech awarded 332 doctoral degrees.

"The attainment of the benchmarks that moved Texas Tech into the top tier of research universities is a testament to a long history of scholarship and research by our faculty and another source of pride for our students and alumni," Schovanec said in the release.

According to the release, Opperman said this designation is a source of pride for Tech and an opportunity to look forward to the future.

"This is a significant milestone for Texas Tech University and its community and should be a source of pride," Opperman said. "But we also recognize there is more to being a great public research university. We should use this opportunity to renew our historical commitment to the undergraduate education experience of our students, while continuing to expand research opportunities that will make a difference."
