From the Desk of the Founding Dean
New OTC Director – I would like to congratulate Rosalinda (Rosey) Natividad, (former associate managing director, Foundations and Corporate Relations for the Office of Institutional Advancement), on her new position as Director of the Office of Technology Commercialization (OTC) in El Paso. Her new role in OTC will be to lead and develop the commercialization strategies for TTUHSC El Paso. Anyone working on patentable research or projects which may have commercial potential, or that can be funded through technology or state and/or federal grants may contact Rosey at email@example.com
Social Media OP – While we have been legally established as a stand–alone university, most of our operating policies remain the same as HSC Lubbock policies. For example, a recent addition to HSC policies is a new "Use of Social Media" policy. If you register a social media site on behalf of TTUHSC you must go through the Office of Communications and Marketing in El Paso for approval. Please take a look at OP 67.03 if you or your department staff use social media sites.
Holiday Lights – On a lighter note, our campus holiday lights are up and on. We invite the campus to take a stroll to enjoy them. I would like to thank our wonderful staff in maintenance and housekeepingfor their extra efforts in putting up our holiday decorations.These requests and work orders range from department level requests to an all out effort to decorate our campus landscaping to keep our spirits merry and bright! Stay safe.
- Jose Manuel de la Rosa, M.D.
