DALLAS (KRLD) - During separate meetings last week, the Midwestern State board of regents and Tech board of regents voted to approve asking the next session of the Legislature to pass a bill authorizing Midwestern to join the Tech system.

Texas Tech System Chancellor Tedd Mitchell said in a statement that MSU has a tremendous reputation across Texas and is committed to offering an affordable and accessible education for its students.

If lawmakers approve the plan, MSU will become the fifth university in the Tech system.

In the last legislature, Tech was allowed to expand with a new vet school in Amarillo and a dental school in El Paso
