Robert Duncan, a longtime West Texas lawmaker before serving as chancellor of the Texas Tech University System for the past four years, has announced his retirement.

The 65-year-old chancellor had served 18 years as a state lawmaker, the final 14 as a state senator, before his appointment as head of the West Texas university system. In a letter to the Tech system "family" Monday evening, the one-time Texas Tech University student body president from Vernon, Texas, said that, at his age, "it's time to retire, move on and begin to tackle new challenges."

The retirement takes effect Aug. 31.

During his chancellorship, the Tech system had pursued a veterinary school in Amarillo and a dentistry school in El Paso, efforts that remain uncompleted.
