TTUHSC El Paso Announces Associate Vice Chancellor for Institutional Advancement

Andrea Tawney, Ph.D., has been announced as Associate Vice Chancellor for TTUHSC El Paso’s Office of Institutional Advancement.

Tawney joins TTUHSC El Paso from New Mexico State University, where she was the Vice President for University Advancement, Marketing and Communications, and President of the NMSU Foundation.

Under Tawney’s leadership, the foundation launched the most ambitious cash campaign in the NMSU system’s history, with a goal of raising $125 million.

Within five years, Tawney’s team raised more than $100 million in cash and pledges and set record fundraising marks two years in a row in 2017 and 2018. She also raised some of the largest gifts in the history of several departments and colleges, and in 2015 launched a Giving Tuesday initiative that raised nearly $6 million for student scholarships.

“We are thrilled to bring someone with Andrea’s skills and experience to TTUHSC El Paso,” said TTUHSC El Paso President Richard Lange, M.D., M.B.A. “With the Woody L. Hunt School of Dental Medicine and other developments on the horizon, this is an exciting time for TTUHSC El Paso, and we are confident Andrea can lead us to success.”

Prior to NMSU, Tawney served as the Director of Development for the Schools of Nursing and Allied Health Sciences at Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center (TTUHSC) in Lubbock, Texas.

“I am delighted to be back in El Paso as part of the TTUHSC El Paso and Red Raider family,” Tawney said. “Having earned my doctoral degree from Texas Tech University, the opportunity to serve my alma mater in this capacity is an honor. It’s an exciting time to be part of the growth and impact that TTUHSC El Paso will continue to make for the Paso del Norte region.”

Tawney has worked in higher education for 15 years, and has served four years of active duty in the U.S. Air Force. She earned a Ph.D. in Higher Education Studies from Texas Tech University, with a focus on the predictors of academic success for first-generation college students. She also holds a Master of Education and a B.A.S. in Justice Systems, Policy and Planning from Northern Arizona University.
