Biographical Sketch

In 1959, it was decided that the university should continue the self-evaluation study first begun in 1951 by Texas Tech President Wiggins. Though the main purpose of the study was to evaluate the university's graduate programs, the study surveyed both the undergraduate and graduate programs. A faculty committee was created to serve as a steering committee for the faculty study section.

Each department was asked to submit a report on its doctoral programs and to complete a report based on questioned set by the self-evaluation committee. A composite report was compiled from these various departmental reports, after which the committee reviewed the report and made suggestions. A final draft of the report was then completed. The university repeated the self-study with final results in 1973
