Texas Tech University Libraries’ Faculty Academic Contributions Exhibit has become a tradition. Founded on the idea that scholastic enterprise is among the most noble of all endeavors, this annual event recognizes faculty excellence, celebrates academic diversity, and fosters collaboration and dialogue across an array of disciplines.

Faculty and professional staff at TTU Libraries are proud to host the 23rd Annual FACE event. This year’s theme, Envision the Possible, proclaims that Texas Tech faculty members are distinguishing themselves as innovators, visionaries and catalysts who are focused on solving humanity’s complex puzzles and turning opportunities into plausible solutions.

Faculty accomplishment is the reason that Texas Tech is gaining momentum within higher education. Some indicators, including a 20 percent increase in funded research, point to the fact that Texas Tech is broadening its reach and advancing its reputation in the arts and sciences, engineering, architecture, agricultural sciences and natural resources, humanities, visual and performing arts, and other disciplines.

In 2006, a record number of faculty members participated in the FACE program, submitting the largest collection of scholarly works to date. This year’s event promises to be just as successful. The addition of multimedia presentations also will make this year’s event dynamic and engaging.
