Texas Tech Vet School Not Needed, says Texas A&M Official

Dr. Eleanor Green—AMARILLO GLOBE NEWS

A Texas Tech veterinary school is not needed and would be a duplication of effort and a waste of money – all at the expense of the quality.

Let’s look at the facts. The Texas A&M University System has invested $90 million in the Panhandle, with more to come, all in support of veterinary medicine, the livestock industries, local youth pursuing veterinary careers, and the region’s economic development.

A&M just broke ground on a $22 million, Veterinary Education, Research, and Outreach Facility (VERO) on the West Texas A&M campus, just 17 miles south of where Tech wants to locate its school.
