From the Desk of the Founding Dean

TTUHSC El Paso President – I would like to congratulate Dr. Richard Lange on being selected the founding president and new dean of the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center (TTUHSC) at El Paso. Last week, faculty and staff welcomed Dr. Lange at a meet and greet where he shared his vision for our university. Afterwards, he and his wife Joy Bobette received a special tour of the campus. I wish them the very best. Please read more about Dr. Lange in the news release in this Tech View blog.

OMNI UPDATE – The content management system used to update TTUHSC at El Paso web pages recently changed from Luminis to OMNI UPDATE – which has many website liaisons and content contributors cheering!  This user-friendly system makes updating information a breeze, compared to its predecessor.  Although there have been a few tweaks needed along the way, it appears this upgrade was worth the wait.  And while I’m on the subject of the website, I would like to introduce our new campus webmaster – Edith Olexiuc.  Edith, who has a strong background in IT, was one of almost 30 faculty and staff members receiving OMNI Update training this week.

Administrative Professional Day – I want to recognize all the administrative professionals at TTUHSC El Paso for helping us get to where the TTUHSC at El Paso is today. If not for the efforts of these professionals every single day, many of us could not do our job, or do it seamlessly and effectively. Thank you!
