Texas Tech has officially announced the hiring of Alberto Gonzales.
The press release, which says Gonzales will work as both a recruiter and teach a junior-level course on “contemporary issues in the executive branch,” makes no mention of Gonzo’s involvement in the U.S. attorneys scandal (among other things) or his subsequent resignation. Instead, it ends with, “…and later was appointed Attorney General.”
Specifically, Gonzales will be responsible for “recruiting and retaining first generation and underrepresented students,” and will help plan a leadership training program for minority and first generation students at both Texas Tech and Angelo State University. In addition to his class, he’ll also guest lecture for other courses.
“His own upbringing in Houston as part of a migrant family with eight children makes him qualified to tell underrepresented Texas students that college is possible,” said Kent Hance, chancellor of Texas Tech. “He will help Texas Tech and ASU prepare our students for success and to be future leaders in the State of Texas and beyond.”
