Texas Tech Will Study Possibility Of Building $90M Vet School In Amarillo


Last week, the Texas Tech Board of Regents approved a plan to study the feasibility of building a facility to house a new school of veterinary medicine in Amarillo.

As The Amarillo Globe-News reports, the proposed vet school building would be located just northwest of the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center School of Pharmacy in Amarillo. Texas Tech University is also looking to purchase land about two miles away, for a proposed large-animal facility.

The new vet school would cost an estimated $90 million dollars. System Chancellor Robert Duncan is said to be privately committed to raising the necessary $90 million for the veterinary school. The plan to study the proposal is figured to cost around $240,000.

The Tech Board of Regents also proposed a plan to study the possibility of building a school of dentistry in El Paso.
