San Antonio Express-News Supports Dental School at TTUHSC El Paso

The San Antonio Express-News editorial board on Saturday, March 16, endorsed plans for the Woody L. Hunt School of Dental Medicine along with three other Texas Tech University System exceptional item requests.

Exceptional item requests are for initiatives meant to solve critical challenges facing our region and state.

Texas Tech University System Chancellor Tedd Mitchell “makes a sound argument for legislative support of his system’s plans for expansion: It’s about expanding higher education opportunities to more students. As a state, we cannot afford to cast higher education funding requests as rural areas vs. urban areas or as pitting one university system against another,” the editorial board wrote.

The Lubbock Avalanche-Journal’s editorial board also has endorsed the WLHSDM.
