On this episode of the Growing Our Future Podcast, Aaron Alejandro introduces Kent Hance, Founding Partner at Hance Scarborough, LLP & Chancellor at Texas Tech University. In December 2006, Hance became the third chancellor of the Texas Tech University System, which was comprised of Texas Tech University and Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center at the time. Under his leadership, the system set records in enrollment, research and degrees awarded, and doubled in size, growing from two universities to four with the addition of Angelo State University in 2007 and the creation of Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center at El Paso in 2013. Hance, who retired from the position in 2014 as the system’s longest serving chancellor, also raised more than $1.069 billion in the most successful capital campaign in the history of the Texas Tech University System.
